The illustrations are accurate. Good overall condition despite the inevitable minor dents and scratches due to age and use. All constructions are firm and sound. The black lacquer is slightly rubbed on some exposed areas such as some backs and on the feet. A few minor shrinkage cracks on a few legs and at the rivers of a few backs. The leather is in fine condition.
