Bergere Arm Chair

One of a pair of Mahogany Bergere Arm chairs , this one has suffered a not unusual broken back leg. I think this is common due to the shortness of the grain where the leg is shaped from one single piece of wood and also as the timber shrinks over time this causes the
brass wheeled casters to become loose which puts more leverage on the legs.

A repair has been undertaken before , I will take it all apart and decide then the best course of action.
