In overall ‘country house’ condition and will benefit from some general conservation as this set supremely comfortable armchairs are in very original condition. The later red covers are tired with old marks and stains and would benefit from a deep clean. The chairs retain their original Howard & Sons ticking which is stained with minor tears and would also benefit from cleaning. The frames are sound and sturdy but the legs with typical scuffs and scratches with loses to varnish and will benefit from a polish according to taste. A country house classic.
