We are pleased to be offering today a wonderful set of 10 assembled shield back Hepplewhite dining chairs that date from the 1940s in complete refinished condition. We have taken this set that came out of a house here on the east coast. They were around the table and had been there for years and we thought that they were a 100% matching set. However when we started to hand strip them, we started to notice little differences but if I didn’t say anything you would never notice. The flare of the back, the cut out splats, the front legs, the cross stretchers are all the same. The molding on the shield itself on some of the chairs have one little extra line in them, which you would never notice if I didn’t tell you to look. It appears like four of the chairs do not have the extra line. The chairs have been completely stripped, meticulously glued, hand sanded, hand stained and multiple coats of satin sheen lacquer have been applied and hand rubbed. For the seats, we picked out a gorgeous and expensive fabric to reupholster the chairs. We finaled the chairs with, I believe, five coats of satin sheen lacquer, so they are definitely good for the life time that you have them and even the next generation more than likely. They consist of one master chair and nine side chairs. They have a shield back design in the back with multiple finger splats, a one piece back leg that goes up into the chair, a solid H cross stretcher in mahogany and the front legs with the double lined carved and spade feet. They are a mixed variety of woods, but they are all color tinted in dark Reddish Brown Mahogany stain to match. It is hard to find a set of ten and we are pleased that we are lucky enough to have found them to offer to your today. The overall size of the arm chair is 22 inches wide on the seat, 19 inches deep from the back to the front, 39 inches high on the back, 26.5 inches high to the arm and 19 inches high to the seat. The side chairs are 19 inches wide, 17.5 inches deep, 38 inches high to the back and 18.5 inches high to the seat. You are getting all 10 chairs for one money. It is a gorgeous looking set of ten matching chairs. Please check our other items as we are listing new items daily. It will cost $285 to have these 10 chairs shipped within our normal shipping area.
