These are the real deal. Its super rare to find even one of these much less a set. Theyre actually in pretty good condition for their age. Keep in mind they are vintage so there is some wear that comes with age and use. The cushions have a little nick here and there.
It looks like someone tried to cover one of the nicks with some clear fingernail polish (or something along those lines) at one point in time. You can tell its been awhile because the polish has yellowed just a bit. I did not try to remove the polish.
The seat covers are what appears to be a very heavy vinyl type of material (not exactly sure what material it is). But it has a clear coat type of finish on it that has dulled a little here and there over the years.There are some marring marks and scuffs to the clear coat that dont go through or affect the color. You only see the marks in certain lighting and at certain angles.
Theres a nick here and there to the wood, too. But I dont see any notable cracks or splits in the wood. Theres a little wear to the wood finish and a random stain here and there.I tend to over-disclose just to be safe but dont let me scare you. The chair cushions look to be all original. Two of them are kind of a taupe or putty color (with more brown hues than gray). Two of them are kind of a light coral or salmon color. These are a challenge to measure as all bentwood pieces are! No two are exactly alike. Here are the approximate measurements. The round seats are pretty sizeable. They measure about 18 ½ in diameter. The seat measures about 18 1/4 tall (from the floor to the outer top edge of the seat cushion rim). The cushion slopes up and is higher than that towards the middle. The height of the chairs at the back (from the top of the back to the floor) range from 31 ½ to 32 ½. The widest point of the arms range from 21 ¾ to 23.
The height of the arms where they start to bend at the front range from 26 to 27 ½. The depth ranges from 21 ½ to 22 ½. Again, these are approximate measurements. I have done my best to give an accurate representation. Please be sure to review my photos as theyre an integral part of my description.
I did take the maximum # of 12 photos allowed from every possible angle. Please note all my sales are final. You will not be disappointed!
