Up for your consideration is an absolutely superb pair of hand-carved chairs from the Renaissance Revival era, c. 1870. The arm chair features dolphin-form arms and griffins on the back splats. The chairs are completely hand-carved, and the design in not applied wood, but carved down from a thicker piece of wood. This is indicitive of the best in quality. Although not upholstered, I have shown a pillow that I use as a set cushion. This is shown in the last pictures, and is a decorative idea (but not included with the chairs). I believe the chairs are made of solid black walnut, and are likely German from the Black Forest region.
The chairs are in excellent condition, free of cracks, restorations, or missing elements. The chairs are sturdy and ready for immediate use. The armchair measures 53" tall, 25" wide, and 23" deep. The side chair is 51" tall, 23" wide, and 22" deep. The chairs look much more similar in size in person that what the pictures seem to indicate.

WHY SHIPPING MAY TAKE UP TO 10 DAYS AFTER PAYMENT
Safe shipping methods is a priority for me!!! Often this requires having custom made packaging from an outside service, or the use of 3rd party insurance (i.e. not from UPS or FedEx who are notorious for not paying claims). These issues can be resolved, but require the use of a professional packing service, and this can add several days to the shipment. If this is an issue, please notify me, as most items are shipped much sooner (especially if I can pack the item myself). However, please be aware that when making a purchase, there is a possibility that I will need to outsource the packaging. I do guarantee that it will be shipped (from our end) within 10 days.
