In overall very good condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'very good condition' relative to the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include minor nicks or dings on a piece of furniture, normal separation at joints in wood due to expansion and contraction over time, all locks functioning, and all drawers and doors open or slide easily. If there has been a break in the marble, it has been so expertly repaired that it is difficult to tell. If some of the original trim has been replaced or minor restoration has been performed, it has been so expertly done that it is difficult to tell. Minor trim may occasionally be missing. Upholstered items may show wear consistent with age and use. EuroLux Antiques makes no representation regarding the comfort of chairs or useability for the customer's particular application.
There is wood separation in the top panel on the back of the piece and extremely minor wood separation on the left edge of the top surface due to age and use. Shows very minor warping towards the front of the top surface. This is not visible from the front and can only be seen in profile. There is also wear to the original hardware.

Arts and Crafts EASTLAKE AND THE ARTS AND CRAFTS STYLE
The Arts and Crafts Movement began in England and was a reaction against the overly ornate, mass-produced furniture stemming from the Industrial Revolution. William Morris (1834 - 1896) and Charles Eastlake (1836 - 1906) felt that so many mass-produced goods would have a negative effect on the human condition as well as the social aesthetic. Morris, who wrote The Art of the People in 1879, advocated handcrafted works, which naturally were more expensive to produce. Ironically, only the very wealthy could afford to purchase his works.
Eastlake, the English architect who wrote Hints on Household Tastes in Britain in 1868, focused on straight lines and used very shallow carvings. He also preferred using the natural wood grain, such as burled walnut, as a decorative element. A later edition of his book was published in the United States in 1872 and the rectangular and boxy Eastlake style swept England and the United States at the end of the 19th century. Ironically, because of the straight lines and shallow carvings, his designs were very easy to mass-produce and much of what is known as Eastlake furniture was actually mass-produced.
The mail-order catalogs (an Industrial Revolution marketing invention) of Sears Roebuck and Montgomery Ward offered complete suites of Eastlake style bedroom, dining room, and parlor furniture. Eastlake helped to again popularize the use of oak and walnut at the end of the 19th century after the use of mahogany and rosewood had dominated early 19th century furniture. Red marble was frequently used for vanities, nightstands and parlor tables.
The Fine Print
Because EuroLux Antiques maintains its own website and lists on other online sites, while also operating a physical store location in Newberry, South Carolina, we reserve the right to end any listing early if it has not been purchased outright or no bids have been placed upon the item. On occasion, a piece listed on a website may no longer be available. We do our best to maintain the accuracy of our inventory records but we often have customers interested in the same item at the same time. In those cases, we defer to the customer who placed the earlier order. We apologize in advance by any inconvenience this may cause. Because of this, we encourage all of our buyers to purchase the item as quickly as possible so that your treasured find doesn't sell elsewhere to someone else. Happy browsing and thanks!
