Reproduction Dining Chairs
Little more than 100 years ago, most chairs were handmade and hand-carved by artisans -- a concept foreign to many today. However, Amish woodworkers are quite familiar with hand-wrought work, even in present times! Our Reproduction Dining Chairs collection features thoughtful, fresh versions of timeless classics -- including this press back chair of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The press back chair became popular, and possible, during American industrialization of the late 1800s. With the popularity of mail-order catalogs like Sears Roebuck & Co., Americans wanted artfully decorated chairs, but with haste! The invention of the steel die stamp made it possible: delicate designs were etched into a steel plate, which was mounted onto a roller and then applied with pressure to a chair crest rail. The resulting impression resembled hand carvings of centuries past, often strikingly so!
Relive history in a set of our Amish Press Back Dining Chairs. They're available in side and arm styles, and the expert handiwork with which they're made make them current in any home. Five woods are available: oak, cherry, brown maple, quarter sawn white oak, and hickory. Pick your favorite and call us for assistance with ordering, or just to ask a question! A friendly furniture specialist is ready to take your call at 1-866-272-6773.
A piece of history -- yet to make its mark in your home and on family memories -- can be yours with this Amish Press Back Dining Chair.
