This is a table that goes with the 2 chairs shown below. The pineapple type feet were missing on 3 legs and the wrapping was loose on the strechers. We went ahead and made new feet for all 4 legs and rewrapped the strecher.

This is the first of the 2 chairs. Many spokes were broken and especally the ones going up into the arm causing the arm to sag further breaking the reed. We replaced 90% of the spokes compleatly from the skirting up through the arm and into the braid. These chairs are mostly reed with only a little of the weaving being fibre.
