The condition of lots can vary widely and the nature of the lots sold means that they are unlikely to be in a perfect condition. Lots are sold in the condition they are in at the time of sale.

This priedieu is in fairly good condition overall. There are the inevitable minor scratches, scuffs, abrasions and shrinkage overall consistent with age and use. There is a minor knock to the left corner molding. The top drawer is lacking handle. The base reduced in depth, as stated. Otherwise, sturdy.
