Salterini Wrought Iron Table and Chairs

By mwilcox


John B. Salterini emigrated from Italy and from 1928 to 1953 he made very high quality outdoor furniture. "French Provincial" is the original factory name of this pattern, one of many produced by Salterini.

During the post-World War II housing boom, the John B. Salterini NEVA-RUST furniture company marketed its garden furniture in home and garden magazine ads, touting, "It's the decorative trend, using wrought iron furniture indoors because it brings into your home the freshness and of a flowery summer garden."

Salterini's furniture is highly sought after by Decorators today, we have seen the "French Provincial" pattern sets list as high as $8500.00 in Specialist Galleries, but comparable examples in very good condition at auction sell in the $1500.00- $2500.00 range.
