Overall in very good condition. When viewed firsthand, the red lacquer presents with a dynamic surface with subtle irregularities in color and texture. The lacquered wood surfaces present with very light surface scratches, rare instances of small edge abrasions, scattered and very minimal white and black paint marks throughout. The lacquer with occasional areas of spotty discoloration and losses, as well as spotty soiling marks concentrated to the lower tier and not visually distracting. The eggshell pieces are in well-preserved condition and retain their original brightness and present with rich and textural tones that range from white and off-white to burnt sienna as pictured in the catalogue photography. The underside of each leg with protective metal pads. This table is offered with a protective glass top in very good condition.
