I own a table and chairs by L. Hitchcock & Company, made of cherry wood and black/cherry chairs with hand painted detail. The chairs were getting weak but I did not want to give up my table. I found your chairs which match the decor with my table. The chairs are quite sturdy, carry thru the black/cherry look and have great design appeal on the chair backs. The chairs will last for years due to their excellant construction and look like a matched set to my table. I am so pleased as L Hitchcock & Co. is not longer in business and the design and manufacturing tools were sold to a company in England making the chairs impossible to replace. I recommend the chairs to anyone intrested in this design style of chair.
