Superb graining, 2 3/4" thick top. Features one small drawer under top. Warm and even patina, minor light scuffs to edges of base. Good vintage condition. 1/2" difficult-to-see filled hole to top (due to a missing wood knot). Small area (approx 2 1/2" dia.) of minor cloudiness to finish along one edge near corner of top.
