Overall in good condition. As is common with Jeanneret designs, the wooden surfaces present with irregularities inherent to the wood selection and expected signs of age. The teak with scratches, abrasions, stable hairline cracks, edge indentations and scattered discolorations to the finish throughout consistent with gentle use, as well as occasional evidence of prior sensitive restoration and inpainting. Three of the four joints connecting the seat to the legs display separation, which may benefit from professional restoration at the buyer’s discretion. One joint displays a breakage to the wood leg measuring approximately 3 in. long and a second joint presents with a hairline crack to the wood measuring approximately 2 ½ in. with associated losses to the wood. The lower tier with a small trace of blue paint, not visually distracting.
