ANTHES BAETZ FRENCH PROVINCIAL WALNUT VINTAGE CAPTAIN CHAIRS [SOLD]
Pair of French Provincial style Vintage Walnut Captain's Chairs with cabriole legs. Possibly Anthes-Baetz Furniture Company, Kitchener, Ontario. They date approximately 1965.
COMMENT: For casual easy living, these two matching French Provincial arm chairs can easily fit into almost any home decor. Ideal on each side of a hallway table with an overhanging mirror! Of course a floral bouquet on the table would give the final touch to tasteful decorating.
DESCRIPTION: These two vintage captain's chairs are executed in the French Provincial style and are made from solid walnut. They come with the original velour fabric seats. We deduct that they are quite possibly from the Anthes-Baetz Furniture factory of Kitchener, Ontario due to the fact of having had, in the past, the exact style and fabric with a signed matching table.
