This antique Edwardian leather oak desk chair and mechanism are in excellent 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 seat and back have been newly upholstered, to a professional standard, in top quality full grain avocado green leather, which incorporates the traditional brass studwork tacks to the seat perimeter. Therefore, the leather is in excellent condition, with no wear, fading or damage. The 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 features a mellow oak colour, having been cleaned and professionally French polished, by hand, in our workshops. The chair features top-quality replacement English made solid brass castors, which are also in excellent condition. This item is solid in joint and ready to use.
