Therefore, the leather is in excellent condition, with no wear, fading or damage. The Hillcrest reclining and adjustable height mechanism is in good working order, having just been cleaned, restored and serviced. There is some play to the mechanism but this is perfectly acceptable, and in line with the age of the chair.

The chair sits on four splayed solid oak legs that terminate on top quality replacement English made solid brass castors, which are in excellent condition.
