This pair of chairs is in good original condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges, seat, frame and legs, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. There has been evidence of historical woodworm to the chair frames and legs; however, it has been thoroughly treated. Please note, antique furniture of this age and in particular furniture constructed of elm was susceptible to traces of woodworm, as it was a softer timber. The chair retains it original polish and patination, which is why the chair a boasts a stunning warm colour. The chairs sit firm on the ground and do not wobble. They are solid in joint and ready to use.
