Excellent condition.

Student is dressed in the regulation uniform for making formal calls at the homes of family and friends as well as for strolling up and down the Nevsky Prospect, St. Petersburg's equivalent of New York City's Fifth Avenue. Unlike the kitchen furniture appearing in portraits taken in rural photo galleries, the style of chair seen here was very fashionable at the time.
