Condition report
Some fading scuffs and scratches. Some plank separation to the tops of the tables. There are some old screw holes presumably from where some batons have been fixed to the underside of the table tops. There are some brass table connection clip sections to the underside of the table tops - these appear to have been moved along the underside of the edges. Some ply panels applied to the underside of the feet to level the tables up. Some chips and dents around the edges of the table tops and the edges of the feet. The underside edges of the feet of the longer buffet table have been cut away - perhaps to fit over a lip or bar in the floor.
