As a genuine antique there is wear and use commensurate with age. Marks and wear to leather to be expected for age, back rest has gone darker to top giving the chair an aged/worn look which adds to the appearance. Condition not bad at all and adds to the charm of this well loved chair. Some wooden products may have signs of historic woodworm. As a precaution we apply a clear triple action woodworm treatment that also kills wet rot, dry rot and woodworm.
