Dining chairs with a history

If you have read much of this blog, you probably realize I love historic Charleston, SC homes. The annual Festival of Homes and Gardens started March 16, causing me to wish I lived closer to Charleston than I do.

While looking at the website, I discovered the following picture.

This is the first photo I have seen of actual antique chairs that might have been an inspiration for the chairs in my dining room.

Most Queen Anne chairs have a solid piece of wood up the back, while these have a cut-out design similar to Georgian style chairs. What an exciting find!
