This file drawer is in very good condition. It belonged to my grandfather about the early 1900's. It is in excellent condition as far as the wood and construction go, and the drawer slides smoothly with no problems. It is bigger than most I have seen, 16 3/8" long, 8 3/8" wide, and 6 9/16 tall.
All the joints are tight and sound. It does have a few small spots, but nothing big, and no damage. A little discolored on top at the front, from general use.
