**In overall good condition. There is a repair to the front right leg. It appears to be structurally strong and secure. Minor imperfections from use. The backboards have some drill holes likely for electronics wiring. The center mullion strip which separates the two doors is attached as part of the left door and has some looseness. Retains its working key. Has a very impressive and stunning presence, and a very pleasing finish and patina to the wood.
