I scored these beauties on "Small Business Saturday" (click here to learn more about Small Business Saturday) from a shop near my house. I always wanted a Victorian balloon back chair, so I was super happy when I found not one but two of them!! :) I'm still working on dating them, but I think the chairs are from about the turn of the century.
The back of the chairs have a hand carved grapes and leaf design. But don't let their delicate design fool you, these chairs are super sturdy.
I love the curvature of the backs. So gorgeous!
The upholstery on the seats sport a handmade needlepoint floral design.
I'm going to wait awhile before I begin working on these chairs. My plan is to refinish the wood and find the perfect elegant fabric for the seats. I can't wait!
