Just look at these wonderful Captain’s chairs by A. Brandt! This pair of armchairs is comprised of rustic solid ranch oak with a natural oak finish that is signature to A. Brandt Company furniture. The Natural Oak finish was made by sealing the wood, double coating it with lacquer, and applying liquid wax and Spanish whiting. These chairs have a sturdy frame with solid oak stretchers between the base of the legs with carved design and seven round back slats under the top rail that wrap around the base of the arms and seat. Simple and striking! These captain’s chairs are ready to grace your ranch style kitchen table, dining table, or game table with a hand-hewn flair that only A. Brandt can create! Or…maybe you have a rustic breakfast nook or western style rec room in your mountain cabin home that needs just the right pair of chairs? Here they are!
A Brandt Company was established in 1900 by German immigrant August Brandt. But it was Paul Brandt, August’s son, who engineered and debuted the Ranch Oak furniture in Fort Worth, Texas in 1938. Paul served as company president for approximately 50 years. The production of the Ranch Oak line continued until the mid-1980s. It was used in ranch homes, mountain homes, dude ranches, and basement rec rooms across the nation. The US government contracted Ranch Oak furnishings for many of their military bases. And it was used by National Park lodges plus roadside motels for its attractive, durable, rustic type of décor.
We just love this pair of ranch oak captain’s armchairs and are sure you do too…make them yours!
