A very good looking and well made piece, it screams late Georgian decadence. This is one of those pieces that to the untrained eye looks to be quite normal but a quick look closer and you can see the premium timbers, the sublime carving and so it. We have cleaned waxed and polished it from top to bottom, its in good used period order throughout. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
