Condition

Nicks and scratches that are normal for its age. There is a small crack in the glass of an area on the left glass door. There is a missing part of the upper molding of one of the letter slots inside the secretaire desk. There are stains on the lid on the desk (writing surface area). No missing handles. Both glass doors close fully. The key included works for both the top (glass doors) and bottom. The bottom doors open and close, but the left hinge is not as smooth as the right. The bottom doors open to reveal a pull out shelf that appears to have been added later. To prevent the door from warping, the right door roll ball catch on the top and bottom is a little tight, but they both work. The top drawer is pulled down to access the writing surface. It has catches on both sides. The right side is tighter but works. Some of the tightness of the mechanisms is due to wear from age. To ship: it has a crown, mid section and bottom that come apart.
