The two green steel Meadowcraft swivel barstools are in great condition. The beautiful lattice backs give the stools a retro garden patio appearance. These are super nice stools as they are made from what appears to be a high-quality steel. The reason that we do not think they are cast iron is that they have a slick finish and have a very small circumference. Also, the tolerances allowed on these chairs are very close. For example, the measurements on the arms are almost identical.
Please note that the pictures have been enhanced for clarity and sharpness. While they are super close, in some cases a color may be a little lighter or darker due to the fact that a certain particular section is being focused on.
The patio barstools were made by the Meadowcraft company of Birmingham Alabama.
The patio barstool from Meadowcraft has a center swiveling mechanism. The black center section in the middle of each seat is the swivel mechanism. Both swivel mechanisms are in good working condition. While both swivels have some wear, one has a little more play than the other.
There are no breaks, cracks, or repair places on the frames of the chairs. The seats in the pictures will be shipped with the steel patio barstools. However, they do have wear and will need to be covered - unless the worn fabric appearance is preferred. In the area where the seat cushions set are little tabs that simply allow screws to go through them to hold the seat cushion sections in place. A couple of the tabs are missing but what is there is more than enough to hold these seats in place. Furthermore, it may be desired to leave them loose as they could be taken in when not in use. The base of the seat cushion appears to be plywood.
There are some vintage wear and rub places on the stools. There is some white color near the top of the backs that might come off with the right scrubbing and chemicals. The color of white matches a porch rail that the patio barstools were placed up against. Also, the pictures show the tops of the arms as they show wear. The patina on the metal is showing where the green has been worn by the continual handling of the arms. There is no rust on these steel barstools that we have noticed. We do not call rust - patina - we call rust -rust. Surface rust is different from deep damaging rust in that it can most often be wiped away with a light abrasive or sometimes a rag.
Below we provide measurements for the barstools. However, the one measurement that is very important is the location of the round footrest. The footrest is very comfortable and has little wear.
It does not appear that these barstools have been painted. If they have been painted overspray of some sort or an uneven amount of color would almost certainly show up. There are no such places of overspray on these barstools.
Even the little round feet are made of super quality metal. They are all intact. One of the first things to go on many garden patio style furniture items are the feet.
Each of the feet on these barstools have little plastic inserts. Some of the inserts have wear and a couple are missing.
What can these barstools be used for?
The decorative possibilities are many. Since they are made of such high-quality construction they are in heavy - 48.8 pounds heavy. Most likely it would be best to leave them in one area. For example, the covered porch or patio with a raised picnic table would be a perfect location for these barstools. Also, these beautiful barstools would make a perfect addition to a growing patio set. They are just plain good to sit in. In general, when outdoor furniture is used, it is obvious to the user that they are not in the comforts of their living room. However, with these barstools, the user realizes they are sitting on a comfortable high-quality piece of patio furniture.
The collector will appreciate these steel Meadowcraft barstools for their great condition.
Each steel Meadowcraft swivel barstool weighs approximately 48.8 pounds.
The combined weight of both barstools is approximately 97.6 pounds.
****Please note that the measurements do not include seat cushions.
While the seat cushions in the pictures have wear and need the covers updated, we will ship them with the barstools to make it easier for covering and fitting.
Please note these measurements are approximated as sometimes there are little differences between two separate items - approximately 1/8" to .25".
Each steel Meadowcraft barstool measures 23.75" tall in the front to the top of the metal that the seat sets on.
The arms are 21" wide from inside to inside in the front.
The widest section of the arms is 23" from outside to outside.
The lattice style backs are 18 1/8" tall from the metal that the seat sits on to the top of the back.
The barstools stand a total height of 40 1/8" tall.
The round footrest at the bottom is 9 7/8" tall from the floor.
The four round feet on the bottom are 17.25" apart from outside to outside.
The seat is 18.25" deep from the front to the back.
The barstool measures 23" deep from the front lip to the top of the back - if a straight line ran out from the top of the back and intersected a line coming straight up from the front.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of manufacturing or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
