This piece does have condition issues. The top triangular section is made of two pieces, the back has slightly warped, this is not visible from the front. It appears that something heavy was placed on the front area at the top of the center section. It pushed the wood top down into the lower supports, you can see evidence of where the supports pushed into the wood. The are old age splits. At some time in the 20th century old cabinet lights were installed inside the upper cabinet. See photos.,
