The chair features a curved bow back; secured by shaped wraparound arms, with an intricate central pierced fretwork panel, flaked by horizontal and vertical shaped support bars, all of which support the back to the seat frame.

The chair rotates 360 degrees on circular cast iron base, which incorporates ball bearings within the mechanism for a smooth swivel action. The chair mechanism has been cleaned and serviced and is in good working order.

The chair is very comfortable to sit on and it has a fantastic colour and is in good original condition.

The chair frame has been cleaned and wax polished in our workshop. The revolving mechanism is in good working order, having been cleaned and serviced. The chair rotates smoothly on its original cast iron mechanism, which incorporates ball bearings for a smooth revolving action. 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 is well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
