Overall in very good condition. The top with some minor rubbing, scratches, and some lightening consistent with age and use. The leather surfaces of the desk are in excellent condition with some scratches, and some rubbing along the raised seams. It appears that the desk was used against a wall, and therefore it has been completely protected and shows slight scratches, and is ever so slightly darker in color. With brass with minor pattination, and some very small spots of oxidation. The chair with some discoloration to the leather across the top edge of the backrest, likely from handling. There is one area of the front edge seam on the seat measuring approximately three inches in length which has begun to the pull at the seam and has separated. This is a superb original condition example of Adnet’s designs. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
