The chair frame is sturdy and the item is extremely comfortable to sit on, as it features a lovely padded seat.

Condition Report:
This Edwardian oak desk chair and mechanism are in good overall condition, considering its age. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the chair but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The chair features a light mellow oak colour, having been professionally French polished, by hand, in our workshops. The chair seat has been recently upholstered, to a professional standard, in top quality full grain green leather, which incorporates the traditional brass studwork tacks to the seat perimeter. Therefore, the leather is in good overall condition. The reclining and adjustable height mechanism is in good working order. There is some play to the mechanism but this is perfectly acceptable, and in line with the age of the chair. The chair features top quality replacement English made solid brass castors, which are in excellent condition. This item is solid in joint and ready to use.
