Customer Question
I recently won a...

I recently won a mid century Morganton dining room set at a local auction. I reached out to the folks at Drexel, to see if they could give me any idea of whether the chair upholstery is leather or vinyl. Unfortunately, they could not provide the info I desired because the dining room set apparently was produced before the 2 companies merged. Would you happen to know if Morganton used leather or vinyl in the 1950's for their dining room chairs?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Appraiser should know?

I have 2 Captain chairs and 4 side chairs. All the chairs are in mint condition, with no holes or tears. I would like to know the material of the chairs so I can care for them properly

Morganton Furniture Co chairs are generally leather. If these were created in mid century, they may have vinyl replacements.

I use a canned paste wax to care for my leather pieces.

I hope I have helped you.
