Overall condition is consistent with age. All defects have been photographed. Please refer to multi image. Recently restored, oil cleaned and the wood shows some beautiful characteristics. One of the legs has a slight chuck missing at the bottom, this is very old damage. Rattan seat has a few very minor sections missing near the edges. However the seat holds strong and useable, but please bear in mind she's an old girl. A slight wobble to the chair, as expected with all Bentwoods, light weight and durable. Item has been priced accordingly.
