Barnard and Simonds Table and Chairs

The Barnard and Simonds Furniture Company was founded in New York in 1898, moved to Michigan in 1959, and was purchased by Baker Furniture in 1967.  They specialized in very fine quality American and English Country reproductions and adaptations.  We love this classic leather games/ library/ breakfast table and chairs with brass tacks and mahogany faux bamboo legs.  The table has gold embossing and a slightly scalloped skirt.  A set of four chairs without the table in similar condition recently sold on Chairish and was listed at $3,800.00 U.S.
A set of two similar chairs is also available currently.
Two of the chairs we are featuring are in good vintage condition with some cracking but no tears and the leather is still very soft.  Two of the chairs are in very good vintage condition with a very small amount of cracking, no tears, and very soft leather.  The table is in excellent vintage condition.  We have only ever come across one other piece by Barnard and Simonds which we sold a few years ago.  It was a screen (pictured) and it was also very handsome and beautifully crafted.
Table; 32.5" square, 28" h.  Chairs; 25" w., 22" d., 29" h.  American, c. 1940's  SOLD
