UPDATED WITH PIX!! SEE THEM SIX POSTS BELOW!!!
These five seats are antique--really!! They were made in 1929 by American Seating Company and are heavy cast iron (I think). I painted them to match the color of my theater room, and the new fabric is pretty groovy--kind of a Southwestern style w/ dark hues! Because they don't rock/recline (and did i mention they're heavy?) you don't necessarily need to bolt them to the floor--just don't go out of your way to lean back or forward in them. The seat back is not tall, and the seats don't spring up when you stand up. Handles are wood. Lots of great artsy flourishes in the design of the endpieces and armrests. I only used three in my set-up, but there's enough for five chairs
total. $200 for the row of five--a bargain considering I spent $150 for fabric less than two years ago.
Their weight would make shipping them economically unfeasible, so if you're in the middle Tennessee area, you can pick them up.

Steve,
Let me check with the wife. I have no problem picking them up. We spent a lot on Christmas this year, so she may deny me. Can't her to ask :).

the clock is ticking, guys. . .

my Mitsubishi WS-65869 arrives in a matter of a few weeks. this row of seats must go! the $$$ from the sale is going to pay off a small chunk of the TV.

if you've been good this year, give Santa a hint. . .
