Lucky you. I'd love to have some of those, too, but I've seen them here for $100 or more each and they were all rusty.

Lovely chairs! I wonder if those chairs are more common in certain areas of the country. I live in Washington state now, and never see them anywhere around here. I used to see them when we lived in the south (Georgia and Alabama). I love em! Do you think they're a regional thing?

I love them too. Red is particularly nice in my opinion!

Prestonsnana, maybe they'd rust out too much in Washington to be popular there. I remember seeing them everywhere around Wisconsin when I was a kid. Very pretty red and that is a decent price for them. They were always fun to rock back and forth although they got hotter than heck in the summer sun! Around here, aqua was a popular color in these chairs.

ABSOLUTELY LOVE your chairs!!!! I collect old, metal chairs. These are two I bought at a garage sale for $5 a piece! The lady who sold them said I would want to paint them a more pleasing color! I love the colors! Left them and use them sooo much! :o) Thanks for sharing your beautiful chairs! Bear Hugs! Kirk

We had them in the South, but with our humidity they
rusted and in a few years, if not diligently cared for,
would rust through.

I love those chairs. They remind me of when I was a kid going to my Grandma's for summer

I love those and they are so pretty in your yard. I see the reproductions ever so often, but not the vintage. I think rusting was really a big problem. I have a vintage glider and chairs and I have to prep and paint them almost every other year, but I love them.

Love this type of chairs. I also collect them. I have about 5 so far and a metal glider. They do seem to be more available in the South. I remember my grandparents had several metal chairs and we would all sit out in the backyard and visit. Ahhhhhhhhhhh the good old days! I love the red!

The red looks wonderful with the fence color & greenery of shrubs. In So. Dak. I remember a light turquoise color & yellow,occasionally ,Christmas green color. I like the red!! Jan

I love the chairs, but that's a really cool looking table between them too. Was it made from recycled materials?
