This desk/lowboy is in good condition for its age, sturdy and strong, with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches, and other imperfections. There are age related dings & dents, as to be expected. As typical on antique desks, the drawer insides are a lighter weight wood than the rest of the desk. I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email me with any questions you might have prior to bidding. Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina, charm and character….NOT for like-new condition!!!
Professional packaging, shipping and insurance on this item will be $155.00. (lower 48 states only) due to the size and weight. It's too large for normal UPS, so delivery will be via UPS FREIGHT.
