Birds and Beads Chair: Just in time for spring! The three wood birds are hand painted, collectible, old, folk art. They are quite happy to be surrounded by colorful beads and vintage buttons. The wonderful tree buttons were hand painted by my Dad, Albert Capello. This 1940's Maple chair stands 35" tall at the back with seat measurements of 14.5" x 16.5". The seat and body have been treated with a high gloss protective finish. Signed DV 2005.


     

   
Readers are Leaders Pencil Chair: Fun. I haven't done one of these in quite a while. It was a special request from Cape Cod Magazine for their March '09 issue. Even more fun. Covered with zillions of pencils, both vintage and hand painted. Some old game pieces, beads and wood letters are scattered between the pencils. The seat has hand painted, vintage buttons surrounded by turquoise beads. Striking. This antique wood chair is 36" tall at the back with a seat that measures 15" x 18". The seat top is a distance of 18 1/2" from the floor. Would be a perfect touch to brighten up that "normal" office.



Note: Continental USA Insured shipping is approximately $300.00 on a fully decorated chair and about $95.00-$125.00 on a "Just Seat" or small chair. A hand made box is built for each chair to insure safe shipping. I ship via UPS Ground. Just to let you know.
Thank you, DV
 
My hand built boxes are almost as creative as the chairs!
