Condition & Dimensions
Frames have been refinished and present very well. The seats are made from Vinyl, which seems very rare indeed. Nevertheless I love 60s Vinyl as it bomb proof and lasts forever…. the Vinyl has been refurbished and is in perfect condition of course
Canvas has been cleaned and has NO tears or RIPS.
Overall they are nice chairs in good vintage condition.
