Very good functional condition, with age-related signs of use and traces of repairs over the years. Both the locks and the hinges are no longer original and new patinated brass fittings appropriate to the style have been fitted.

The entire surface has been stripped of the old wax, revealing the beautiful matt texture of the raw oak wood.


The furniture can be transported in 2 parts (upper part, lower part). In addition, the doors can be unhinged and the shelves can be removed.
