We have an Edwardian chair with leather upholstery in need of some TLC. Since the scratches, tears etc. are the emotional attachment just as much as the chair itself, reupholstery or any replacement of leather is not an option.

Since most commercially products appear to target much newer leather, I'd be grateful for any thoughts on ...

What is the best way to feed leather of this age and make it more supple with the minimum change of color ?

And what is the best patch material and glue to use for leather of this age ?
