This Victorian solid beech and leather desk armchair and mechanism are in excellent condition, considering its age. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the chair frame but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The chair seat has been newly upholstered, to a professional standard, in top quality full grain sage 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 cast iron revolving 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 boasts a lovely mellow beech colour, having been cleaned and professionally French polished, by hand, in our workshops. The chair features good quality brass castors, which are also in good condition. This item is solid in joint and ready to use.
