Structurally sound. Retaining an old dark surface. The front and side seat rails appear to have been reshaped. The carved knee returns have probably been re-set. Original pine slip seat, with probably the original leather upholstery fastened to the seat with rose head nails. The right arm slightly loose. General marks, wear, rubbing and surface scratches throughout.
