Overall excellent original condition. The painted metal frames of the chairs with chips and losses to the paint consistent with age and use, and are concentrated to the lower portions of the legs. The wooden seats with a superb patina and with some minor surface scratches, edge nicks and some slight discoloration. One of the chairs with a loss to the veneer to the proper left edge which measures approximately 4 inches in the length. Two of the chairs with significant wear and losses to the larger rubber back feet. However, the chairs remain even on the ground. A superbly matched set in original condition.
