In good antique condition throughout with some signs of age. There is surface wear in places including age-related scratches, marks and stains to the fitted interior (pictured), further marks and scratches to the drawer fronts. The base side panels have age-related shrinkage (pictured), also honest repairs to the feet (pictured). There is evidence of historic woodworm, however this is now long gone and has been fully treated as a precaution. The antique Welsh oak bureau remains structurally solid and sound, with the drawers running well. Comes apart in two sections for ease of transport. Overall, a clean example.
