Condition Report

The bureau has been conserved recently, however much of the original patina has been left intact to preserve originality, including ink marks to the internal shelf and two of the drawers, circular marks and light surface scratches to the exterior and pen marks and dark patches to the writing surface, all consistent with age and use over time. Tarnishing to the brass ferules. Accompanied by a replacement key for the functioning lock. Structurally sound.

Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's Australia is merely a subjective, qualified opinion. Prospective buyers should also refer to any Saleroom Notices regarding this sale. NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD AS IS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS.
