Description: This is a very fine set of 8 high end formal Chippendale style dining room chairs made by Karges Furniture. Chairs are model #4930 and armchairs are #4935. Chairs still retail new for $5000+ each for the side and $6000+ each for the arms. Set was bought in 2004 and has been in a storage unit since 2009. Along with these chairs, I have the matching dining room table #862 and the louis XVI sideboard #341, both from Karges and from the same estate. Set includes 6 side and 2 armchairs. All 8 are upholstered in a white patterned fabric. A few of the chairs have small stains on material.
