Condition

Overall in our opinion the pair presents well. Light natural wear commensurate with age and light use. Each chair has occasional areas of wear to the leather that have been touched in with a white pigment. On each chair this is particularly evident around the buttons on the seats, and also to the extremities of the leather frame such as the edges of the armrests and backrests. The back edge of one back rest has a minor scuff to the leather where the leather beneath is revealed. There are minor marks and abrasions to the ebonized legs. In our opinion these issues do not adversely affect the overall appearance of the chairs. Each chair retains a firm structure.
In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion.
