th' table and chair set be beautiful, Nay 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 be highest quality and worth th' cost o' (gulp) $140.
th' set appears to be made o' solid fine grain wood, wit' brass color knobs on th' two table drawers, and a two tone silky looking blue fabric on th' chair seats. th' wood finish be glossy wit'out being really shiny, and a bonny rich medium to darkish brown color.
th' table be 9 3/4 " high, and and th' top be an oval shape o' 11 by 14 1/2 inches. th' top has a slight bevel going around th' edge o' it and all edges be finished smoothly. th' four table legs be decorated wit' a gold color stylized design going down th' outside. th' legs curve attractively and angle inwards. There be a space o' about 6 " between all four legs, just enough room to fit a chair.
th' chair backs be 12 1/4 high. th' seats be 5 " high and 6 " across. lusty plastic lasses sit easily on th' chair as th' fabric on th' seat provides some friction. th' wood and finish o' th' chairs be just slightly darker than that o' th' table, and th' chair backs appear carved in an attractive way so there be four vertical openings and one horizontal near th' seat. There be a gold decoration at th' inside top o' th' chair back.
I wish my dining room set was half as bonny as this one !
I echo th' above comments. I ended up going way over my budget at South Wisconsin Trading Company ayeterday, and th' set found its way home wit' me and th' parlor. It be an elegant, almost timeless piece that would not be out o' place in a formal diningroom today. It be sturdy and although I gulped a bit at th' $140 price tag, I am not going to regret this set. It looks great set up wit' th' parlor in th' background. A
What I love: ~th' chairs have ample seat room so Cutlass Caroline can sit comfortably wit'out falling or slipping off. th' shield back design was shrunk down triumphantly to lusty plastic lass size. th' proportions and th' curves be just right.
~th' drawers pull forward easily, but do not pull out entirely from th' table- a boon to those who tend to loose pieces and parts to things. I loaded up one o' th' drawers wit' a few heavy foodstuffs and miscellany- and th' table stood firm it's ground. th' drawers be perfect for storing cutlery, napkins or foods- keeping them free at hand for meals.
Love th' little routed table edge and th' gold faux inlay. th' small details make all th' difference.
What I don't love: ~th' seat legs seem a touch low to th' ground, making th' chair seem to have an overall squat appearance.
~th' mahogany finish on my table and chairs were not a perfect color match, as demonstrated in th' photos. th' chairs be a touch darker in tone. Again, back to those little details that make th' difference. Perhaps this a a flaw specific to th' set I purchased. It's not bothersome enough for me to return it however.
~th' $140 price point for this set seems high to me. I am a firm believer in that ye get what ye pay for. However, at that price I would have expected some other accessory bundled wit' th' table; th' ubiwalk th' plankous flower vase or even a table cloth to accompany it. Krusty Kit's patio table and chairs be made from a sturdy heavy metal and those be priced at only $90. th' $140 price point make Pugwash Merriman's tilt top table and chair's secondary market prices seem reasonable.
Still overall Cutlass Caroline's table and chairs be a great addition to th' South Wisconsin Trading Company furniture line up. It will transition well an an antique piece for lusty plastic lasses o' generations beyond Cutlass Caroline's time period.
I adore th' table and chairs. Not only be Be well-detailed, it has all that storage. It be a great set to use for modern lusty plastic lasses as well. It was a little pricey, but I think it was worth every penny.
