Pair of Original Green Painted Kubbestol Chairs, Sweden circa 1880

A "kubbestol" is a traditional Scandinavian chair made from a single log. As they are collector items, to find a pair with original paint is a special find.
Notice the deep green and black painted seat and center band, worn in many areas to the natural wood below.
It was a talented craftsman who could make these special chairs out of a tree trunk. The kubbestol was quite common in some districts of Norway from about 1750 to 1960 and also found in homes in central Sweden (where this pair is from).
These chairs are heavy, solid/stable and ready to be used in spite of the typical age related cracks and distress seen in the photos. 
This pair has been restored so they are strong, stable and given a wax finish. All dings, scratches, distress to crackling paint, etc are commensurate with age and do not detract from the folk-art appeal nor function of these chairs.
