I've been wanting "real" chairs for my dining table for since we moved here. I've been using green metal folding chairs, which I love by the way, but they aren't super comfortable. So, I've been keeping my eyes open for random chairs at The Salvation Army and Goodwill.
I did read somewhere that Imperial Glass made custom orders and one of kind gifts so perhaps this falls into that category. One way or another, I love it.
That's how I discovered it was made in 1951. I've tried to find anything else that looks even similar to it, but... nothing... nowhere.
