A number of the losses have been filled or painted-in. There is a loose end of brass stringing on the lower part of one return.
The other side exhibits indications of loose stringing that has been imperfectly laid back down. Several minor veneer flakes, most notably along the edges of brass inlay. This item is in the category "Antiques\Furniture\Cabinets & Cupboards".
