Condition Report

The cabinet measures 47cm high, 56cm wide, 24.5cm deep; weight approximately 12.5kg overall including cabinet and base.
The rear horizontal pole has previously been broken off and reattached with glue; this glue is losing adhesion and while still attached it is loose, will require attention; a rear section of the rigging has become detached from the rear mast; the lower horizontal pole to the central mast has suffered either from a knock or a casting flaw as there is a crack in this pole, this is mostly visible from the reverse rather than the front or opposite side to the crack; there is further general wear, the sails, ribbons and connecting ropes are thin so display some misshaping; additional images available
