This Victorian office 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 has been newly upholstered, to a professional standard, in top quality full grain green leather. Therefore, the leather is in excellent condition, with no wear, fading or damage. The chair arms and back have been glued to ensure the chair frame is solid in joint. The original 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 features a rich brown colour, having been traditionally French polished, to a professional standard, by hand, in our workshop. The legs incorporate solid brass and chrome ball castors, which are also in working condition. This item is solid in joint and ready to use.
