This tub armchair is in excellent condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the mahogany frame but nothing significant considering the age of the item. There appears to be a small section missing from the cartouche on the front of the seat frame. The chair has been newly upholstered in a taupe grey colour cotton material, with pale blue braiding, as well as traditional hessian backing to the underside. The upholstery is therefore clean and free from any marks or damage. The seat is well sprung and does not sag. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received. This chair is solid in joint and ready to use.
