    I'm just looking for info on these chairs as I have inherited them from my aunt. They are all S Bent Bros. made in Gardner, MA. They are in okay shape, little scratched up. I don't think we can keep them, as we have no room for them. just wondering what they would be worth...

      Wow - here's an ad with pretty much those same three chairs. 1959. Google them - very common - they are very nice, but there are many available for sale on EBay. I like them a lot.

      You will find tons of info if you just google S. Bent chairs - they opened in 1867, closed in 2000. Hard to date those with scant info.

      Here's some background

      "S Bent & Brothers, a furniture company established in 1867. They closed in 2000. At one time Gardner, Mass., was known as the “Chair Capitol of the World.” Other well-known furniture companies located there were Conant-Ball, Heywood-Wakefield and Baumritter, the company that became Ethan Allen.

      S. Bent and Brothers was known for producing well-made, high-quality furniture. They specialized in the style known as “Colonial Revival.” The two most common primary woods are maple and ash stained to look like oak. S Bent & Brothers were known for their well-made chairs, especially the Windsor type. They also produced dining room tables and other types of household furnishings. From the number of chairs I found in auction results, S Bent and Brothers must have made a great many Alumni chairs for a wide range of colleges and universities.
