In good conserved condition, structurally sound and ready to use. Re-gilt. Each with minor scattered chips, losses to carving and gilt surfaces revealing gesso in some areas as to be expected with age. A few scattered old inactive wormholes and old repairs throughout, consistent with age and use. Partially re-railed. Some separation to joints. One chair with repaired break to proper right back leg, which is well done. Upholstery in good condition overall with only very minor staining and wear, as to be expected.
