9.12.23-In my opinion regarding LOT: 868- The chair is in sturdy and stable condition, upholstery is with possible light yellowing/discoloration and spotting, it is very hard to tell, please see images, the right side of the foliate crest near the great bunch, has a small restoration to the foliate, and a matched small loss at the back as visible in online images, I further observe some bending/small losses to tips of foliates on crest, the frame shows some rubs, light wear, and tonal variation as commensurate with age and use
