Found this information online and I thought it was interesting enough to share. It was on a Facebook page of Lost Illinois Manufacturing. "William H. Howell, a foundry man from Ithaca, N.Y. came to Geneva, Illinois in the 1850's and worked with Eben Danford to build the Danford Reaper which was forced out of business by the McCormick reaper. In 1862 Danford & Howell opened up their foundry along the east bank of the Fox River in Geneva. The company was bought in 1924 by two Elgin men, Edward Ekvall and William McCredie, who expanded into wrought iron products such as tables, stands and drapery hardware. They later went into manufacturing gliders, bridge tables, chairs, lawn furniture, and the chrome-plated tubular steel furniture featured at the Century of Progress World's Fair in Chicago during 1933 and 1934. As orders grew they needed more space and in 1935 purchased the vacant Cable Piano factory building in St. Charles with 176,000 square feet. During WW II Howell made bombs and shells along with airplane wing sections and with the war ending went back to making their steel furniture. The Howell Company which at its peak employed close to 500 workers shut down its St. Charles plant in 1980." Condition: The wood has some minor imperfections to be expected for it's age. The chairs are in great condition, only a few minor flaws that are not really noticeable., Region of Origin: America, Color: Light Wood Tone
