So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.

Importantly, there is no damage or missing pieces to the carvings. The back of the frame retains its original backboards, with a new safe solid chain. The bevelled mirror, which most likely a replacement, is in excellent condition, with no foxing or fading. This item is ready to be used.
