Very good overall condition.

The table top presents with hairline scratches, water marks and two ring water marks, two tiny dents on the inner circle rim inherent to the material; stains, scratches, sign of burns and drawing of the table base to the table top underside. One of the bolts is inserted in the table top underside instead of the table base as the others three. Scratches throughout the legs, few dents on the their edges, light discoloration particularly towards their lower part and a slight crack on one side of one leg. Rubbed and loss of varnish to the feet underside. Oxidation of the brass feet decorative elements, one is loose missing the bolt to the reverse. All consistent with use and age.
