The chair sits on four splayed solid legs that terminate on replacement top quality English made solid brass castors. The chair incorporates a revolving mechanism and it rotates 360 degrees; the seat height can be adjusted by turning a ribbed metal screw on the underside of the chair.

The chair frame is sturdy and the item is extremely comfortable to sit on, as it features a lovely padded seat.
The chair features a mellow brown colour. It has a lovely colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
