circa 1972

Overall in very good condition. The corrugated cardboard presents with light wear, scattered surface scratches, abrasions, occasional discolorations and light compression consistent with age, gentle use and the nature of the material. The seats and seat backs present with slightly more concentrated rubbing and compression to the cardboard, consistent with use and not visually distracting. The cardboard presents with occasional frayed pieces, stable and particularly concentrated to the interiors. The edges of both chairs present with light surface soiling and scattered water stains, not visually distracting. The recessed contours of the cardboard with light surface soiling and minor trapped debris, not visually distracting.
