Overall fine condition. Wear commensurate with age and use. The proper left seat rail is cracked, shimmed and reglued at the junction with the stile. Age cracks to the proper front left leg at the junction with the seat rail and to the shell carving on the crest, neither causing structural concern. Each corner of the seat frame is wrapped with cloth webbing, so unsure if this was associated to cracking or just reinforcement.
