Good overall condition. There are instances of wear and scratches mainly located on the feet. One lack of paint on the underside of approximately 4 x 2 cm. 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.
