I finally found some painted chairs and I picked them up at a bargain price.
They will, of course, need to be restored. They had been re-painted, probably in the 1950s or 60s. The newer paint is peeling, showing the original paint underneath. One of them is in terrible shape with the back loose and a piece broken off. I will probably restore that one first. I can't wait to see what the original decorations were.
