Material:  Leather & paper

Size:  Front ~ 10 inches,  Back ~ 8 inches, Depth ~ 10 & 1/4 inches, Thickness ~ 1/8 inch
Quantity:  1 Set of 6

A very interesting set of six antique chair seat bottoms, pressed with an ornate pattern of birds on floral branches, surrounded by fancy scrolls, scallops and a beaded medallion.

After examining the backs and edges we believe these are made of old pressed leather, possibly covered or finished on the backs with a thin layer of paper or similar material.  See image #5.

They appear to be unused and are in very good condition.  Due to the nature of leather and its inherent natural irregularities, each seat is somewhat unique.  Also, each has subtle differences in the finish, ie;  areas that appear slightly matte compared to the overall, which has a slight sheen.  This is minor and would not bother me, but if perfection is required I believe a coat of leather polish or similar would suffice.

Also, one has a very tiny edge nick, and two have lines that cross the pattern, one small, on a back corner and one larger, across the back quarter of seat.  Since these lines do not show on the reverse we assume these are just natural variations in the leather, however we are including a close up image, so those more familiar with this type of material can make their own determination.  See image #4.

The seat bottoms have seemingly been stored securely stacked upon each other and remain very flat and not bent or tweaked out of shape.

This set of six old chair seat bottoms are very fancy and ornate, much more so than newer versions and we believe they date from apx. 1890-1910.  These are virtually impossible to find in unused condition.
