These seats are out of a late 60s, early 70s Fiat Schallete. They were designed to be used around the ocean in Italy and surrounding countries. No roof or doors, sort of a beach buggy. The old reed was brittle and splitting and the customer wanted all replaced to use at his summer place. The difference, I think, between these and the early Fiat "Jolly" is the extra "roll" on the back of the front seats. I'll post another picture once they are stained and finished.

Here is the sofa that goes with the pieces posted earlier along with a rattan bar, ottermans,but no pics of them. A total of 11 pieces and the customer was kind enough to send this message; "Rob, We are extreamly pleased with the way these pieces came out. The color is perfect and Jan is especially impressed with the weaving on the bar stools. Thanks so much, Jeff. We would be happy to make a recommendation or provide reference if ever needed. "
