What a gorgeous pair of Captain’s chairs by A. Brandt! This pair of armchairs is comprised of rustic solid ranch oak with an Acorn Brown finish that is signature to A. Brandt Company furniture. Acorn Brown was made by applying an oil stain before sealing the wood. After lacquering, Acorn Brown wax was applied. These chairs have a sturdy frame with solid oak stretchers between the base of the legs with carved design and seven double tapered 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 or dining table with a hand-hewn flair that only A. Brandt can create! They would be an awesome pair of host and hostess chairs at the ends of your dining table. 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 accent 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.
What a great pair of captain’s chairs! You need to make them yours!
