Condition: Good vintage. The shelves and cabinets have not been stripped and sealed since they are still in good condition, but they do show slight wear. The brackets have been resprayed.
We found the unit sans its original screws and the mini brackets that attached the wood parts to the large brackets. They are not available anymore in Germany, so we manufactured aluminium brackets.
Dimensions: 31 x 269 x 195 cm (h)
