Maybe it was that little gold leaf insignia on the back splat or the fab upholstery with nail heads. All that adds to the chairs that are in their original black finish in a Biedermeier form. This pair of Art Deco chairs came from the same high end estate as our Art deco desk (see elsewhere.) Everything in the house was from this time era.
Ideas for use include side chairs in a foyer or living room seating area. Extra dining chairs. Flank a door opening. Desk chair or vanity chair. Seat height to wood frame 17". seat height to top of seat cushion 19" The upholstery appears newer/vintage. Nail heads surround the seats. The chairs are sturdy and have minor surface wear to their original finish. The gold leaf insignia on the back splat has patina and wear typical with age and use.
