Condition Report

Overall in very good condition. The wooden surfaces retain their original complexity and the carved decorative details on each leg. The wooden surfaces appear to have been sensitively refinished at some point in the history of the chairs, and the leather upholstery appears to have been sensitively replaced as well. The wood with some light scratches, small indentations as well as surface abrasions throughout, which are consistent with gentle use and not visually distracting. The leather with some very light creasing throughout consistent with gentle use and age.
