Like New

Overall in very good condition.

The wooden surfaces have been refinished at some point in the history of the piece to revitalize the rich appearance of the wood.

Light surface scratches throughout and shallow, scattered abrasions concentrated to two legs and not visually distracting.

Light oxidation throughout to brass is consistent with age.

The faux sheepskin upholstery is a later replacement and is in excellent condition.
