This was purchased for me by my mother. She found it in an auction and no one else wanted it- she paid 5 dollars- or was it 6. I can't remember. It was outside with a bunch of crap, not inside with the furniture. It has a few rips in the leather seat and a small chip in the wood. All in all though, it's in pretty nice condition. It's suprisingly comfortable. I like it to read in.
