This is the Wegner "Wishbone" chair. They seem to be more common that some of the other models and hence more affordable. They all have rope or cane seats from what I can tell.
|This original pair in great condition currently on 1st Dibs is $1800 for the pair.|
|And this set is on Craigslist now for somewhere around $1200 for four.|
Seller is calling this a set of Wegner teak side chairs. I like the way the back comes together so smoothly - $795 OBO for the pair on ebay right now.
|And here is a positively dreamy set of six (four oak and two teak) for $4500 currently on 1stDibs with cane seats. I loooove these.|
The W2 chair is easily confused with this less exciting but very similar Wegner chair (below left) which is also frequently listed as the W2 but which lacks the leg cross-pieces on the front, back and sides which I think really do a lot for the proportions (and strength) of the chair. Maybe they are alternate versions of the W2 but they are hardly interchangeable. Plus, note that the seat on the cheapy looking version is just an upholstered board that fits in whereas the upholstery on the nicer version wraps around the front and sides.
And then there is the best known Wegner chair, known simply as "The Chair" or the "Round Chair". Everyone on the web is pretty excited that Nixon and Kennedy sat in these during their debate. Here they are with upholstered seats.
|A dude named Lenny on ebay wants $6000 for four in oak right now.|
Sometimes they wrap the back with cane and sometimes they don't.
Oh, and departing entirely from Wegner for a moment, here is a set of six Henredon chairs on CL for $220. Two arm chairs and four side chairs. Whatever else they may be, they are well made, solid and in nice condition.
Ask youself, my dear, can we summon enough paint and enthusiasm to make these fun and exciting and suitable for the purpose? it would certainly be nice to save some dough.
