Vintage set of 4 Frederick Duckloe Bros., Portland, PA, solid cherry Windsor dining chairs with bow backs. Excellent quality, hand made, strong and comfortable. Each measures 38.75 inches high to the back, 18.5 inches high to the seat, 18 inches wide and 18 inches deep. Duckloe has been hand crafting chairs since 1859 built with a level of craftsmanship that is reflected in their being commissioned for display by the Smithsonian Museum and also featured in many leading furniture publications. A company statement reads: "All of our Windsor chairs have their respective legs, spindle holes and arm posts drilled completely through their seats and arms, with glue placed in the holes, legs and posts. The spindles are secured in the holes, and these joinery techniques prevent looseness in the Windsor chair legs as the years go by. The superior tight fit is ensured by splitting the Windsor chair parts with a chisel and then a glue coated wooden wedge is driven down into the split. As a result the parts are widened within the bored holes, resulting in an extremely tight fit and lasting durability."

I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
