Condition Report

Overall in good condition. The upholstery presents with some very minor staining, loose threads, and areas of sun fading, mainly concentrated to the edges and back of the sofa, consistent with age and use. The wood surfaces present with minor scratches, indentations, and some losses to finish, consistent with age and use. Minor separation at wood seams, consistent with the natural aging process of the material over time. Some concentrated areas of scuffing and finish loss located on the wood on the back lower portion of the sofa, only visible upon close inspection. The brass feet present with scattered scuffing, minor areas of tarnish, some minor indentations, and scratches, consistent with age and use. An overall elegant form by T.H. Robsjohn Gibbings.
