**Nice, heavy chairs in overall very good condition. The surfaces are in very good condition with a few scrubs or scrapes and some embedded soiling. All legs and backs are tight. There is a very small, minor amount of movement in an arm on each of the armchairs. There is a glued break on one side chair splat. The break does not extend all the way through the thickness of the splat. The upholstery is in overall very good condition, retaining good firmness and shape, a few scattered snags and notable stains.
