3 x Tall Ladder Uprights (H: 201cm / D: 35.5cm)

There are some light surface marks and scuffs on the shelves but these are minor, in line with its age and the fact it’s an original, vintage piece. Likewise, the two cabinets have some minor, superficial marks on the exterior wood too. The drop-down cabinet has a scratch on the front (see our phot0) but it’s barely noticeable. The sliding doors move with ease and this cabinet features a glass shelf inside which is in very good order, as is the interior wood The drop-down hinges move with ease and the interior wood here is clean and tidy too. This cabinet comes with a working lock and key. The gold finished uprights are in very good condition. Again, there are minor scuffs and marks to the finish but once in place these do not notice at all. The nature of this modular system means it can be configured in all manner of ways – we would recommend that there are two people on hand during assembly.
