Overall in very good condition. The seat with some scattered fine surface scratches and minor wear, consistent with age and gentle use. The proper right side of the seat close to the crevice with some very faint evidence of water damage, the largest measuring approximately 1 inch wide, only visible upon close inspection. The bench with some occasional very minor traces of white house paint concentrated mostly to the hickory spindles, not visually distracting. A highly functional and iconic design by George Nakashima.
