Listing is for a matching pair of industrial antique cast iron swing out seats. These are circa 1920, and would have been attached to industrial setting and school benches, tables, desks, and other utilitarian furniture. The cast iron swing arms are in great condition with no cracks or breaks. The wood seats have the original aging, and have only been cleaned with a quick flashing of water based safe Citri-Strip to remove a few small drops of paint and also dirt. You may still see small traces of the dried Citri-Strip residue in cracks and screw holes, but can be brushed off. The underside of the wood seats have wood screws set in place to help secure the 2 separate layers of wood together that make up the seat. They are solid Oak. Separation on the 2 layers of wood on these 100 year old seats is very common as only glue was used when they were manufactured. I left the wood bare and did not add any oil, wax, finish etc. If you look at picture #5 you will notice that it looks like a portion of the iron bar that travels through the seat holder has been purposely shortened at the bottom on both. Dimensions: If the iron arm was to be mounted as it should it would be 11 to the other end of the arm where it meets the seat holder and in the center of the seat. The wood seat is 11 in diameter itself. That means from the far end of the seat to where the iron bracket mounts to a bench/table is a total of 16-1/2. There is a few more inches added on the mounting section of the arm, but that does not effect the length of these for usage and are part of the mounting side. These are a larger size compared to most and they weigh over 12 Pounds each. Ask any and all questions you may have.
