This set came from a very old church that was remodeling. I don't have an exact age. The metal frame is in great condition. The wood seats are still very solid. They were outside on a covered front porch for many years, but have no rust or decay in wood. They are temporarily mounted on a piece of wood so that I didn't need to bolt them down to use them. There is a very nice design on both ends of the seats. I can find no Manufacture name or year. There are numbers on each piece, but they make no since to me. The seats measure 63" long. Don't know if I should restore or not..?
Would love ANY input on these... Year, Maker, Posable worth....?
Thank you for any help you can provide.

    I have chairs with the same end standard that I purchased in Idaho. They were from a theater that was built in 1929, so I believe the chairs are from around that time or before.

    I always love finding these out and about but have never pulled the trigger on a set yet. I'm still tryin to figure out why. Cool

    I also have a similar set. I just had some restoration work done to preserve the wood and lightly clean the metal. The theater they came from was built in 1927 so that works well with the previous guess to its age.
