Historic knocks, marks, cracks, scratches, wear, imperfections, repairs and alterations, as is always the way and to be expected with genuine antique furniture. This item has had historic repairs and alterations, but is full of age and charm and looks magnificent. There is a fair bit of historical wood worm, believed extinct, that we have been treated for good measure (this is normal for period oak). Historical cracking and splits, but these add to the age and charm of the piece. No lock. There is a large blob of old filler in the lid, but this is buried in loads of historic polish and patina and barely noticeable. Later softwood strengthening to the lid.
Please note that this item is large and heavy. Please make sure before buying that it will fit in and can be maneuvered into the room that it is intended for. The customer will need to provide 1 strong able bodied person for our driver to assist with carrying.
