Very good overall restored condition. As is common with Jeanneret designs, wood surfaces have been cleaned and refinished, preserving older wear, small areas of filler, minor chips and stabilized seam separations in keeping with other examples. One with a deeper scratch across the left-facing side of one drawer. Each with grain splits to the back panels. Newer glass panels in excellent condition.
