There is some white flecks in the grain in places and would probably benefit from a professional clean and polish. One hinge is very slightly wobbly. There is no key and the lock is untested. The glass is free of chips and cracks and rings well and long.There are a couple of very small rusty colour marks on the glass and scratches internally to the base and just below the rim.
