Very good; Original vintage furniture deriving from manufacturing period ! Very good condition (ready for use!) - The stool has a label at inner side which proves that it had once distributed by a piano firm having sold pianos made by Bechstein, Foerster etc.: Therefore this furniture piece has function of a piano stool, too!
