Condition:

This chair is in good condition for its age, with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches, and other imperfections.   The frame is sturdy; needlework is amazing to me, the coloring is lovely, and yes, it has wear and torn threading and pulls as expected over time on this ORIGINAL needlework.

 Looking at the underneath, original old springs and stuffing; a few ends on the outer webbing are pulled.   I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email me with any questions you might have prior to bidding.  Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina, charm and character….NOT for like-new condition!!!

 

I also invite you to take a minute to visit my online store, Geaux Vintage Antiques, to see more English and European antique furniture, barley twist items, beveled mirrors, wall shelves, and many other unique and personally selected pieces for your home or office décor!

 

 …”with all that, why Geaux anywhere else?”…
