Condition Report

Overall in very good condition. The metallic structure presents with scratches and oxidation spots to the chromium-plated surface throughout consistent with age and gentle use. The leather cushion appears to be original and presents with a rich maroon surface when viewed in person. The upholstered surface presents with light scratches throughout, minor discoloration towards the outer edges of the seat and very occasional darker stains consistent with gentle use and not visually distracting. A superb daybed of iconic stature, ready for use and display.


The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades.
