Early set of Lyre-back painted side chairs


A once-in-a-lifetime set of six antique painted Pennsylvania lyre-back chairs. Beautiful decoration and excellent condition.


I believe this set to be a Pennsylvania collection from the late nineteenth or early twentieth century. It is a beautiful handmade set with wonderful painting on it. The rich brown color of the background off-sets the orange flower decorations and the gold detailing. I saw a similar collection recently on line for $15,000. While there is the expected wear on the paint, the chairs are not wobbly and show no damage or repairs.
