The armchair in this lot is slightly unstable on a flat surface, one of two noticeable marks to the uprights
Of the five chairs, three are stable on a flat surface, two are uneven, there is general scratching and wear to the ladder backs consistent with age and use.
Generally the colour is good and the seats are not frayed.
