USE: as a standing or hanging cabinet

- very good original condition with few signs of age and wear

- Grade 2+
- very nicely enlarged patina
- a long time ago the cupboard was carefully restored while preserving the originality of the piece
- the missing door lock was also added
- Inside the cabinet was repainted with beige velvet fabric and supplemented with a light in the base area

- two new angles have been mounted on the back for mounting as a hanging cabinet
- these additions can also be easily removed

- no major flaws in the carving and everything firmly attached

- original surface texture not restored

- Please also see the photos
- Wood with age-typical shrinkage cracks (these, however, relatively small and rather beautiful visually than disturbing)
- slightly ancient woodworm holes woodworm no longer guaranteed active

The defects are age and signs of use and mostly normal for such old furniture in original condition.
Due to the small optical unevenness, the cabinet looks full of character and authentic. With little effort, however, these traces can be easily removed if necessary, and the cabinet can easily regain its character.
