Delicate cabriole curved front legs and decorative shaped spindles. These character chairs are well over a hundred years old and have had a TOUGH life. Unsuitable for French polishing or stripping , we decided to celebrate the old, worn finish on these and have cleaned, repaired and treated them ; finishing in a custom light taupe/grey mix of quality chalk paints. A simple and exclusive folk/country motif of our own design and delicate hand lined detail has been painted on each chair in antique white. The carved scroll detail under each seat has also been hand painted in antique white. Each chair is very slightly different Then we have antiqued, rubbed back and distressed each chair, following the original wear marks on each piece for authenticity. Then treated with three coats of clear wax for protection. We did not want to lose or reupholster the classic dark red seats as the patina on these is wonderful. Two of the chairs have original leather upholstery( with age related dinks & marks of course!- see photos ) and two were re-upholstered in a faux leather in a similar shade in the 1940's. These have been carefully cleaned Please note* there are NO rips or tears on these seats . The upholstery underneath has now been steam cleaned and the seats treated with a lovely polished beeswax finish. One chair has had a repair to stabilise it Two of the chairs have had new lining fabric where damaged and all four have had new springs fitted: however, as most of the original vintage seats remain and as these are old pieces we cannot provide a fire retardant accreditation. 95cm H x 42 D x 45 w x 46 seat height If you would like us to source a table to complement these, please contact us to discuss your requirements .
