Tuesday My Buddy Dan Put Me On To These Three Dining Chairs. Yesterday I Posted About A Set Of Chairs That Needed No Cleanup. These Are On The Other End Of That Spectrum. Status: Ew.
Yeah, these are a solid mess. They came out of a basement and probably haven't seen the light of day in decades. My buddy Dan told me a relative was moving out of an apartment and these had been in the basement since before they had moved in. They were going to the dumpster if I didn't get 'em.
I haven't done any looking into who made these but there aren't any maker marks or stamps on them.
There is a set of numbers on each as seen in the photo above. I know, "Three?". Yeah, I hate sets of
three like this but I've got desks that need chairs so breaking up this "set" won't be hard.
See how dirty? The seat isn't attached to one of the chairs and you can see what the upholstery is
supposed to look like! How many years does it take to accumulate that much dust and cobwebs? At
least the chairs are otherwise sturdy and solid. And I imagine (I have to, cuz I ain't tried sitting in any of
these yet) that because the seats are sculpted that they will be comfortable too. Wish it was warm
enough to spend some time outside cleaning them up!
