Very good overall condition. There are some instances of wear and small scratches, mainly located on the feet. One paint lack of approximately 14,5 cm long on the front right hand foot. Discoloration of the upholstery. The leather under the seat presents with drying cracks due to the normal aging process of the material. This pair of armchairs have been repainted and reupholstered at a later stage. All consistent with age and use.
