Estampillé DESIGNED BY T.H. ROBSJOHN GIBBINGS MANUFACTURED BY SARIDIS OF ATHENS sur une plaque en métal sur six chaises, estampillé SARIDIS en cyrillique sur quatre, numéroté 11751 sur trois et une numérotée 11696 au revers

Very good overall condition. Some very slight instances of wear, scratches and dents on the feet. One chair has a small paint lack on the back of approximately 1 cm long. Discoloration of the upholstery. The leather under the seat presents with drying cracks due to the normal aging process of the material. These chairs have been repainted and reupholstered at a later stage. All consistent with age and use.
