condition

The pair of chairs are in overall good condition. There are minor bruises and scratches especially at the fragile extremities, and other general surface wear. The tips of the feet have been slightly reduced to conceal bruising. Some of the joints have been skilfully reinforced with tiny areas of infill. The underside of the chairs reveals the original natural patina. As typical, the matting on the seats have been replaced.
