Vintage antique "Telephone Operator" swivel chairs from the 1920s. Lovely Bentwood design. One larger size (pics 2-6), one smaller size (pics 7-12). Tall chair is likely mahogany, and shorter chair is likely walnut. These items are extremely rare; as of this posting, you won't find any others on eBay and likely anywhere else.
Overall condition of chairs is quite good. Large chair contains two breaks in the base ring, but nothing that can't be repaired.
Measurements of tall chair: Seat: 16.5 inch diameter, base: 18 inch diameter, 44.75 inches tall (28.5 inches to seat)
Measurements of shorter chair: Seat: 16 inch diameter, base: 18 inch diameter, 39.5 inches tall (23.75 inches to seat)
