  • "There has been no work done to the chair, it was purchased from original owner and always lived in the same room. To answer the question..."

  • "The condition of the wood is great! Structurally and visually, there are no cracks or chips throughout the chair either. Could be a perfect candidate for new webbing, or left in its original condition. In addition, I have further researched the knoll label and it actually is a 1940s version which puts the chair in very early production. Feel free to ask any questions, it's one of my favorites! Cheers"

  • "Hi! Thank you for your explanation regarding the fabric. Curious to know the condition of the chair's wood frame & if it has had any restoration work or requires any now. Thank you."

  • "D M.:D M.: hey thanks for the question, the chair is an early 50s era and bears the early knoll label which is documented in one photo. The "good" condition and not "excellent" is due to small areas of the fabric fraying (pictured) and an even fade of the fabric's original purple color."

  • "Hello! What is the approx age of this chair? Also, you say the chair is in 'good' condition. What distinguishes it as being 'good' as opposed to excellent? Thank you"
