SET OF FOUR BRIDGE ARMCHAIRS
mahogany, vinyl upholstery
36 x 20¼ x 18 in. ( 66 x 51.4 x 45.7 cm) each
Overall in excellent condition. The chairs have been sensitively and professionally re-lacquered and re-upholstered in accordance with the original form and design. The mahogany presents with a rich contrast in color and texture when viewed in person. The wood surfaces present with minor nicks, scratches, surface abrasions and subtle variations in finish consistent with age and gentle use and concentrated to the edges, corners and feet. The upholstery presents very well overall, with one chair displaying one minor tear to the backrest only visible upon close inspection and measuring approximately 1/4 inch wide.
