It is indeed a fortunate day when a vintage painted chair is discovered. The multiple layers of paint chipped and worn to a lovely patina and the hints of past splendor in this chair make it a favorite find indeed.
The similar but not matching chairs lived in the same house at least from the 1960's, perhaps even earlier.
There was a craze for crackling techniques and this chair looks like it was part of the party.
The green is so very vintage as are the cream and red.
The joints are firm, the chairs have substantial weight and are comfortable.
Thought you would enjoy seeing painted age.
Here is another piece, from the same era: a 1950 era Drop Leaf Kitchen Table.
and this vintage yellow bench shares the same time period.
