Condition Report:
These chairs are in excellent original condition. This is a true set of chairs (they have not been matched together from other sets). Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the chairs, but nothing significant considering the age of them. The leather upholstery is also in good condition. If you do not like the colour/style of the upholstery, we can recover the seats in a material of your choice. If you would like the seats recovered, please contact us for a quote. The chairs boast the original polish; therefore, they boast a fantastic patination and colour, which cannot be recreated if the chairs were re-polished.
