Condition report

A repair to a patch of delamination on the left arm. An 8cm crack near the foot/ knee rest section of the chair, visible only really from upper side. No Isokon transfer is present on the stretcher. The chair appears to sit flat, but feels a little fragile - we have not attempted to sit in it or put any weight in it for fear of further splitting. No indication of the exact date it was made.
