Very good overall condition. This iconic table presents with light surface scratches throughout. The cloudy surface is inherent to the making process and highlights the lines of the model. There are some tiny dents on the edges of the feet and one minor loss on one top corner of approximately 1,4 x 0,2 cm, but not visually distracting. All consistent with age and use.


In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report.
