Overall in very good condition. The wood presents with some scattered minor surface scratches, abrasions and light wear throughout consistent with age and use. The fir with some occasional irregularities and separations to the wood grain, which is typical of inland fir and most of which were filled in by the artist at the time of production. The upper edge of the proper left rear vertical pole of one chair with some concentrated abrasions and minor surface losses, only visible upon close inspection and not visually distracting. The same chair with a very minor surface loss on the proper left front edge of the vertical burled pole just above the top edge of the seat cushion measuring approximately 3/4 inch high. The leather has been sensitively replaced in a manner consistent with the artist’s intent and presents with some very minor surface scratches, abrasions and creasing consistent with age and use. The backrest fasteners on both chairs are in very good and stable condition.
