The ends of this one are 'de-laminating' or the Ebony Veneer has become unglued and cracked. This would take quite a bit of work to repair nicely and then perhaps the 'Patina' of age would be lost.
The fact that the Ebony Ends are in bad shape might also suggest that there will be other woodwork problems to correct due perhaps to adverse storage conditions at some point in its long life.
Incidentally, why do you think this would be one of the first Octagonal models... I realise the number puts its manufacture date just before 1900... ?
