This is a beautiful antique chair (Eastlake style) made of solid walnut with decorative veneer bands. It had been damaged, and the frame was coming apart. The seat vinyl was also badly cracked.
When Pierre was removing the torn vinyl cover, he found an identical cover underneath, which was in perfect shape, and matched the current cover on the back rest. Since there wasn’t anything wrong with this cover, and we didn’t need to find/match/order a matching vinyl, we left this one in place. We have NO IDEA why there was a doubled-up cover on this.
The chair was knocked-apart, cleaned/scraped, and reassembled.
