Grandma's Chairs

These chairs were a gift to Grandma Huntington's parents for their wedding May 4, 1886. They've been painted a number of times. I started stripping one of the chairs years ago, planning on refinishing it with a nice stain. However, I found that the wood on the various parts doesn't really match. The chairs were probably intended to be painted.
