Condition Notes

Chair 2004.21.3 has a very old repair to the right edge of the seat.  A section that had split along the grain has been reattached with two old nails, presumably also with glue.  .2 has a replaced spindle.  The chairs have been stripped of all paint and refinished with a thick clear coating,


The set of three Windsor side chairs have bamboo-turned rear posts, five spindles in the back, legs, and boxed stretchers.  The spindles form a fan back and are capped by a double-rod crest with a medallion in between.  The medallions are different in color, appearing to be possible replacements, but they are of different wood than their turned-wood surroundings.  Paint would have covered any visible differences.  The carved seat is slightly dished.
