Consigned by its second owner in untouched, original condition.

Condition Note:

Two seam separations, minor staining/color loss, and one 12" scratch to top. Crack to one pane of glass. Some fading to original black finish. Feet are beveled (more in the front than the back). The back panels of the cabinet look as if the piece was moved on its back and water dripped on the finish, spotting it in places. The owners did not want any conservation done to the cabinet, and conservation should make 90-100% of any spotting disappear. There is also a nail that was placed on the lower left side by the back of the cabinet; we would recommend having the nail removed and the resultant split glued shut.

Signature: Large red decal

Purchased in the 1970s from an Asbury Park estate
