Overall good condition.
The rattan presents with some light scratches, a few burn marks, a few small dents and is slightly dry overall with some craquelures, a few cracks, and instances of discolouration, typical of the aging of this material. Some rattan elements are partially broken and/or have been partially repaired, without jeopardizing the stability of the armchairs. Some reeds are missing and some have been replaced, all consistent with age and use.
The rattan is covered by a varnish that is partially flaking and presents with some chips.
The upholstery is newer and in excellent condition overall.
