Overall very good condition. The painted portions of the chair frames appear to have been repainted at some point. With only very shallow scratches to the lower portions of the legs. The wooden portions of the chairs appear to possibly have a layer of finish added. With minor surface scratches and nicks to the edges, but otherwise the wooden seats and seat backs with a beautiful acquired patina. The chairs retain all the original hardware to the top surface of the chair. Screws used to affix the seats to the frames are later. An extremely well matched set.
