Very good overall condition. The gilt bronze is slightly tarnished, slightly more significant on the lower half of the armchair. There are some scatttered tiny oxidation stains, including some vert-de-gris ones, the latter mostly concentrated to one leg. One soldering joint of the back is broken, but this does not affect the stability of the armchair.
