Texas Horn Chairs

Do you know how much each horn chair cost? It's between $5,000 - $10,000. Holy cow!

According to my research: "Beginning in the 1870's, horn chairs, sofas, halltrees and footstools became fashionable. Some makers such as Wenzel Friedrich (a cabinet maker by trade), Charles Puppe, William Mittmann (all of San Antonio) and many others began making horn furniture on a large scale. Other makers, such as Herman Metz (a St. Joseph, MO fireman) made horn furniture in lesser quantities as a hobby. Plenty of horn furniture was also made in Chicago and St. Louis."

I never knew horn chairs are that expensive. Maybe the Phils can export carabao horn chairs for a change, hehehe. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

Yes, it's a bit pricey but I think if I have the money, I would buy one! :) It's a work of art and a good conversation piece.
