This is a vintage, used item that is ‘sold as seen’. It is an antique piece that was once used in a shop environment so it comes with wear and tear but we believe this is part of this piece’s very charm. The outer mahogany carries scuffs and scratches, notably in the bottom two corners. The surface is distressed in places but we have left this patina well alone. Likewise, the internal paint work and tassels show signs of wear and are a little distressed. Our photos do give an accurate sense of the condition of the piece but if you would like further pictures so get in touch. The hinge works and the shelves are moved between build-in brackets.
You could choose to wall mount this cabinet but please note there are no brackets / fittings on the back. It was originally used as a counter-top display.
If you have any questions about this piece, please don’t hesitate to ask.
