The rosewood frame has been wax-polished by hand, to a professional standard, in our workshop. There are no missing carvings or mouldings to the frame.
The underside of the chaise retains its two original steel structural support bars. There is some natural play to the frame, which would require tightening, if the chaise were to be re-upholstered (this should be done once the upholstery has been stripped off, prior to it being re-upholstered a standard part of the process when reupholstering furniture).
The chaise stands on steel castors, which are in generally good condition given their age.
