The knob that holds the bail handle on the bottom right hand drawer has been broken off at some time, i believe that its in the drawer and the handle is as well as one of the tiny foot pieces that i mentioned above. The back has wonderful wide old boards attached with rosette head nails. Thank you for your interest, please let me know if you have any questions or need more details.
