The chair and mechanism are in excellent 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 wax polished in our workshop. The chair has been newly upholstered in top quality full grain dark green leather, which incorporates traditional deep buttoning. The seat has been newly sprung and upholstered with traditional horsehair filling, with traditional hessian covering to the underside. The original revolving cast iron 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 chair stands on solid mahogany legs with brass and mug castors, which are in good condition. There are no breaks to the legs or cast iron mechanism. The chair is well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
