The chair features a solid stained pine frame with the original patinated woven leather straps, attached to the frame with patinated brass pins. We have two chairs available and they are sold individually. Dimensions: 21.5” width x 27” depth x 34” height, 17” seat height Condition: Excellent vintage conditioned.
