These chairs are solid Walnut. I'm thinking American and not Baughman, but I've never seen them before now. The back and seat slide, slightly, to adjust into a reclined position. But not really.
Man. It would have been a lot of fun to restore that set.
I mean they're both flammable, so...
Really interesting. What are the woods here?
Hard to be rare if its unknown. It's worth whatever you paid for it.
Thanks! It's not super complicated...
Here are some photos from after the table was stripped, sanded, and sealed...
A graining marker would work well here, too, if you were satisfied with just coloring it.
Just read your comment about not being able to feel the crack and I think it is likely that this table was refinished
Once it dries, if you want to get super delicate, you can carefully carve matching grain into it.
