I have these, I got them on Ebay though, so they're used. The lady I purchased them from told me she got them back in 1997-98... so considering they are almost 10 years old, they are still in super great condition and the cushions are still fluffy and colors clean and crisp.

Quite lovely and sturdy - my six-year-old nephew decided to use the table as a step stool! It wasn't damaged at all. The wrapping on the legs is quite well done, so it doesn't come off like some cheaper furniture. And the style of the chairs (the weaving) is an authentic historical pattern.
Overall I give the set an A.

When I first bought Samantha's table and chairs, I was skeptical because I did not think the wicker would last. But surprise surprise- it has lasted over 10 years. They are in great shape. I even bought two extra ones last year when I got more dolls. The print of the cushions is absolutely beautiful. The chairs hold the dolls well. The table holds all the treats well. A+

When I first bought this set the smaller pieces of wicker on the chairs were broken and I had to send in for a new set. Despite this the set I have had the new set for maybe 6 years and it has held up just fine. It actually is a very beautiful and elegant piece. However I think it looks a bit plain without the tablecloth and accessories on top
i just got these today and wow these are just great! I'm debating ordering another set for DD cause I'm keeping these for myself. They are larger than I imagined they'd be and the cushions are super soft. I <3 them.
I bought them for the discount price + I used a 10 dollar off code so they came to 53 dollars shipped which was an awesome price for this item.
Just got my wicker table and chairs today. (Will add pictures later.)
Anyway, they are marked PC (sticker under the table, tag on chair cushion), but not entirely sure if they are, since the daughter letting go of the stuff appeared to be only in high school.
Anyway, what I tend to always forget now that I am focusing on furniture and accessories is how big this stuff is. Of course the dolls are 18 inches, but I still underestimate how big furniture pieces are, such as chairs.
The set seems very sturdy, and possibly more apt to play time than other sets. Being bought secondhand, the wicker on one of the chairs has a few "threads" spinning off, but nothing crazy. I really like this set, as it reminds me a lot of the wicker prices in my childhood days that we had out on the porch and sun room. It will make for some great scenes with my dolls, even if it is not time-period appropriate for a given doll.
