    I cleaned these chairs with vinegar and water. Then hit them with restores-a-finish and a friend of mine does upholstery. I have to do the table this summer. They had white paint splattered on them and their finish was very dull. I also had to take them apart and re-glue them as the joints were loose.

      It was made by Bassett Furniture I want to say late 40's early 50's.

      I love your dining room set!! I have a set almost identical except for the shield backs of the chairs are different, but the legs of the table appear to be exactly the same. If you don't mind I would like to know more on your set and need all info I can get on mine.
