New Chairs

I thought I would share a couple of chairs with you.  I got these at a garage sale a couple of months ago and they have been waiting for a makeover.

The pair set me back only $16!  The lady selling them told me they were "Duncan Phyfe."  So, I promptly went home and researched Duncan on the internet.  Look what I found selling on Ebay for $3,000:

Maybe it wasn't such a good idea to store these in my garage and accidentally crash my car into one of them:

There goes my $2,992 profit!

I'm linking up at Junker Newbie's Would You Buy It Wednesday:

Wow, if those are authentic you've got a great find! Either way, they are beautiful. Good buy!


OHHHH! I adore these chairs! I would have definitely grabbed them and run for $16! :) Can't wait to see what you do with them!

$16 for two antique beautiful chairs is a great deal. Love them.

Wow - awesome. Do you have any big plans for them?

Great find and wonderful price! I wonder how you can tell if they are authentic?

Ideas on what you want to do with them?

Thanks for linking up to my party!

LOL that would be me running them over with the car and am sure would have more damage then that!!! Maybe they can be fixed???

Thanks for all of your nice comments. I'm almost 100% certain these are knock-offs, but a girl can dream, right?
