Chairs are a nice colour with good patina. Scattered marks, scratches, minor nicks and areas of rubbing and abrasion commensurate with age and use. One return, on the proper left side of the front leg, is lacking. One back return replaced, with small element of this and another back return also missing. Seat rails not examined underneath upholstery, which is in very good condition.
