Condition Report:

The large stool is missing one vertical stretcher and one is broken off but present. Other stretchers are in poor condition and are repaired and glued and with small slithers missing. Age separation to joins is pronounced. Old marks wear and indentations to all elements including the seat. Some scrapes and scars to corners and seat.  


 Middle stool is slightly different colour, possibly later stained. There are two metal straps screwed to the underside of the seat - presumably to secure seat slats. Age separation to joins. Old marks wear and indentations to all elements including the seat. Some scrapes and scars to corners and seat.  


Smallest: One of the vertical stretchers has partly come out of one 'hole', a few others are loose. Age separation to joins. Old marks wear and indentations to all elements including the seat. Some restoration to the seat. Some scrapes and scars to corners and seat.
