This antique desk chair and mechanism are in original 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 joints have been glued in our workshop. The chair boasts a comfortable padded seat, which has been professionally upholstered in new top-quality full grain burgundy red leather. The chair frame has been cleaned and French polished, to a professional standard, in our workshop; therefore, it boasts a stunning colour. The revolving mechanism is in good working order, having also been 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 chair stands on its original legs and features replacement fine quality English made solid brass and porcelain castors. There are no breaks to the back, arms or legs. The chair is well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
