Original finish. All pieces marked with the Heywood Wakefield markings and the Contessa name on a blue label inside of the drawers.
In there wheat and champagne finish, our customers will find that we have two different original finish credenza china cabinets. The narrower china top has sliding glass doors with two adjustable shelves with plate rack lines for displaying that pretty set of china or glassware. The bottom has a drawer with a two door storage area with one shelf on a platform bottom. The other china credenza has slanted sliding glass doors with one adjustable shelf and plate rack lines in the china top and below in the credenza is three drawers and one slider door compartment that has a shelf inside that would work wonderfully for a liquor area. Either of these china cabinets works beautifully with the wish bone table and chair set that we just acquired.
