Overall very good original condition. With some slight lightening from sun exposure. The coloring and wear to the chairs is even across this well-matched set. Three of the chairs with losses to the outer edge of the top rail of the backrest. These appear to have been stained, so as to minimize the visual impact. With minor scratches, nicks, dings and chips to the seats consistent with use. The outer edges of the seats with scattered nicks and chips, likely from rubbing with the adjacent chair. A rare opportunity to acquire a huge set of Conoid chairs. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
