It doesn't get much better than this--an early set of original and authentic George Nakashima "Captain" chairs hand-built by George in 1959, constructed in solid walnut, with incredible matching sap grain seats. Each chair signed with client name to bottom: "Kirk". These chairs have everything a Nakashima collector wants: early origins, walnut construction, unique figured sap grain seats (this was an expensive upgrade), glowing patina.
The chairs have gone through a complete professional restoration. They have been beautifully refinished, the joints have all been re-glued, and 3 of the chairs have received some masterful repairs, all of which can be seen in the last 5 photos. They have truly been brought back to their former glory and are sturdy and solid as day 1, ready for another 65 years of use.
It will be a long while until a comparable set hits the market, so don't wait. These collectible chairs have only continued to grow in value over the years, and there is no sign of that slowing down. So, don't miss the opportunity to own the finest set of early George Nakashima "Captain" chairs on the market today.
