When came into our temporary custodianship the foot was oval. It had been as such since the day it was made, not everything "left the chair" in perfect symmetry. This was offered for sale in original condition but we have now had the foot rounded off. This challenge was undertaken by Andrew Knight of Basil Loveridge glass restoration. For just £30 this is an amazing result.
We have reduced the price as this is no longer in original condition but it is more aesthetic and ready to be used.
