Overall in excellent condition. The wooden surfaces have recently been sensitively reconditioned to revitalize the rich quality of the teak and present with scattered fine surface scratches, minor abrasions and small nicks consistent with gentle use. The proper left armrest presents with a minor area that appears to have been sensitively restored measuring approximately 1 x ½ in., only visible upon close inspection. The chair has recently been sensitively reupholstered in a neutral fabric in excellent condition overall.
