Miniature Windsor Comb Back Chairs

On a recent trip to our local thrift store I found this pair of miniature Windsor Comb Back chairs.
This is a style I have long dreamed of owning in real size, and now I have a miniature pair! I paid $10 for the pair, a bit pricey but I hesitated to put them down in case someone else thought they needed them. I added them above the wine cabinet in our dining room. Do they look okay there, or should I find a different spot?

I'm linking up with Thrifty Nifty Tuesdays @ Coastal Charm.  I'm having trouble with the link today so here it is: http://linda-coastalcharm.blogspot.com/2010/03/nifty-thrifty-tuesdays-no3.html

  1. Those are wonderful Elizabeth.

    When we sold the farm, one of the things we bought, that we had always wanted, was the pair of Windsor Nantucket rockers, we had made for us. I love Windsor chairs.

  2. I think those chairs are lovely and you got them for a steal - I can see why you didn't put them down. Someone else would have snatched them up for sure. They seem to look good over the wine cabinet, although it is difficult to tell without a wider perspective on the room. Good find!!!

    I'm having a giveaway over at my blog, that I thought you might want to know about.

  5. I think they look perfectly cute there. Their scale and their height is great!
    My daughters, when they were littler, and played with American Girl dolls, had some chairs like these, and a table that went with them. Ah, those were the days... I miss them.
    I like the stark darkness of the chairs against the wall.
    FUN!

  6. They look lovely there! And I think $10 was a bargain for the two of them!
