Original finish looks cleaned and recoated (possibly skinned and recolored), on front, doors, and sides. Shelves and back are untouched in original near black finish. Hardware has professional new patina. Side edges and front edge have many shallow nicks that have been recolored to match finish, and do not stand out, although they are very apparent on close inspection. Inside of door and back of cabinet show several drips from overcoat. Eight filled screw-holes to interior where catch had been added to doors. George Flint, NYC retailer label tacked on back (Flint was a high end NYC retailer who distributed both Gustav Stickley and L&JG Stickley in their early years).
