There is a full set of 8 chairs that match the table, two of which are “captains” style chairs with arm rests.
Other than the two improperly placed screws I do feel it is well made for a factory chair – factory made indicated (to me) by the round tenons rather than square tenons used in most older furniture. Solid brass slotted screws, hide glue and a shellac finish are also indicators of the age.
All the chairs have the same screws from the apron into the seat.
The table and chairs were made sometime in the early to mid 1900’s based on the information from the current/second owner.
This is the only damaged chair and it received the damage when the load shifted during transport.
All the other chairs are solid and in good shape excepting the normal wear on the rungs from where people will rest their feet while seated.
