The Victorian desk chair and mechanism are in good working condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the chair frame, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The chair frame has been cleaned and French polished by hand, to a professional standard, in our workshop. The chair features top quality full grain dark brown leather, finished with brass tacks to the perimeter. The leather is in very good condition, with only very minor signs of use. The original revolving ball bearing mechanism is in good working order, having been stripped down, cleaned and serviced. There is some play to the mechanism, but this is perfectly acceptable, and in line with the age of the chair, and will be found in all office chairs of this age. The shaped legs terminate on the original solid brass and mug castors, which are in good condition. There are no breaks to the legs or revolving mechanism. The chair is well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
