Originally covered in black varnish when purchased. These chairs were loads of work and tons of prep, too much for my work load. So I outsourced these to my go to Furniture Refinisher, Marty.
He did an amazing job bringing these back to life! Refinished in a rich walnut stain, clear satin finish, with new caning and new upholstery, both foam and a Cobalt Blue wool fabric.
This pair is ready to go for another 50 years!
