This lovely cabinet is showing its age. Most notable are the veneer patches and dark stains to the right side, possibly from heat. The lock and escutcheons are replaced. Recently restored and polished, it's structurally sound and quite usable, but there are countless bumps and bruises from 200 years of service.
