The table and chair set is beautiful, no question in my mind about that. I cannot see how it could be any better, and give it an A +. After seeing this I do feel it is highest quality and worth the cost of (gulp) $140.
The set appears to be made of solid fine grain wood, with brass color knobs on the two table drawers, and a two tone silky looking blue fabric on the chair seats. The wood finish is glossy without being really shiny, and a nice rich medium to darkish brown color.
The table is 9 3/4 " high, and and the top is an oval shape of 11 by 14 1/2 inches. The top has a slight bevel going around the edge of it and all edges are finished smoothly. The four table legs are decorated with a gold color stylized design going down the outside. The legs curve attractively and angle inwards. There is a space of about 6 " between all four legs, just enough room to fit a chair.
The chair backs are 12 1/4 high. The seats are 5 " high and 6 " across. Dolls sit easily on the chair as the fabric on the seat provides some friction. The wood and finish of the chairs is just slightly darker than that of the table, and the chair backs appear carved in an attractive way so there are four vertical openings and one horizontal near the seat. There is a gold decoration at the inside top of the chair back.
I wish my dining room set was half as nice as this one !
