Condition Report

The frame is firm and other than slight knocks and marks of age I can not find any significant faults.

It is possible that the marble slab is a replacement but this is conjecture on my part

The mirror is in good order

The drawer back of one of the small side drawers that are in the mirror superstructure is missing its top section

These small drawers need the drawer stops replaced as the drawers don't stop where they should

The chair and table didn't start life together but both are French

The items show small blemishes of usage and age but nothing major

I have tried to illustrate my points with a few images that I have included.

The pleated silk that covers the back of the swing mirror is sun rotten.
