Condition: This cabinet is generally very sturdy and in good condition. However, the front bun feet are missing all of the rounded segments, rendering them square. The front right leg facing is missing a segment of the segmented skirt which ornaments the leg just under the turned knob. The top of the cabinet displays some flecks of paint. There is also a light paint splash on the right side facing (see photo). One suspects that the room ceiling was painted with the cabinet in place.
