Larkin 1 Oak Press Back Dining Chairs Set of Six
Classic set of six totally refinished re-caned solid tiger sawn oak #1 Larkin press back dining chairs that date from the 1900-1905.
They are gorgeous with the medium oak stain. During the last few years, this has been THE CHAIR that all antique dealers sought after. This is also one of the first chairs that the reproduction companies tried to produce, but they never could accomplish it.
These were originally given away free by the Larkin Soap Company if you bought so many boxes of soap back in the 1890's-1900's. IN the trade it is referred to as the Larkin #1 as they offered four different styles of this same press back with different posts. This is the set with twisted leg posts.
The chairs are detailed with double press backs, turned rabbit ears, twisted spindles on the outside back legs, triple cross spindle stretchers and seat trim that is often missing. This is a stunning set of six.
The finish is a nice warm patina. The overall size is 18 inches wide, 16 inches deep, 43 inches high to the back and 18 inches high to the seat.
