Fairly good overall condition with scattered scratches and dents, especially along the edge of the seat, all consistent with age and use.
One of the stool presents with two areas with chips of wood on approximately 5 cm and 2 cm long on the lower edge of the seat, not visually distractive when the stool stands.
One foot of the other stool is slightly moving and the seat presents with a slightly darker circular mark.
