This is an original 19th century Vernis Martin vitrine weve just bought from a local house.
The cabinet has wear and tear but is all solid.
The cabinet does need some general restoration to bring it back to what it should be.
That said its still useable as is with a light tidying.
Basicly the main faults are.
Some of the ormalu mouldings are loose or need to be nailed back.
The glass shelves aren't original,one is too small and there are some chips.
The fabric is original but very grubby.
The major fault is that one side glass has been replaced with plastic many years ago.
This doesn't actually notice unless you know what your looking for.
The dimensions are as follows.
This is a rare cabinet that fully restored will look magnificent.
Please note that unlike 99% of these cabinets for sale ,this one is a genuine antique Vernis Martin cabinet and not a modern reproduction being passed off as old!.
