Condition: In beautiful condition, however there is some wear on the top right corner and side with some of the finish missing along the edge and a superficial horizontal crack in the lower right portion. There is a quarter size piece of the finish missing in the lower center and some evidence of repair on the top left corner (see photos). Despite some of the wear, it does not detract from the piece's aesthetic beauty and it is still very structurally sound.
