We date this set back to around the year 1940. Crafted in England, they accumulated a significantly beautiful patina over the years. Carved from walnut wood, the frames remain quite strong. Also, the cream upholstery looks great with the darker wood. This upholstery appears old (most likely not original), but remains in good shape with only faint stains here and there.
Balloon Back Dining Chairs
The term “balloon back” refers to the shape of the back rest, which obviously resembles a balloon. Inside the outer shape resides a gently shaped and carved decoration. Furthermore, great looking turned and fluted front legs complete the subtly curved look of the chairs. The chairs’ maker also carved elegant and complimentary decorations on the arm rests. All of these little details come to together to form a really elegant chair.
Overall, these balloon back dining chairs remain in very good condition. One chair sustained a repair to one leg. However, this repair remains strong and should last for the life of the chairs. Also, one of the arm chairs has a small repair to the carved back decoration. Otherwise, only a number of small marks exist. These can be found mostly on the bottoms of the legs, as you would expect from chairs of this age. This set of Victorian style balloon back dining chairs remains a great find that would look wonderful in any home. Don’t miss out on this hard to find style!
