ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION DISCUSSION BOARD

Antigue Dining Room Chairs

I have an old round dinning room table that belong to my grandmother. I remember the chairs were pressed back design and they were "old" when I was young (i'm 64). I found 4 at a local shop but have not bought them yet. QUESTION: One of the back spindels in missing; one is broken half way down; and two are missing one of what I call a rounded wooden "C" brace at the back of the seat. Can these items be replaced or would this condition preclude buying the chairs as they may not be in a repairable state "economically" (reasonable cost)? Would appreciate your advice as I really like the chairs but they need some help. ALSO, the bottoms are round in the middle (no cane bottom holes) but I can't figure out what sorta bottom these would have had? I know grandma's was square!
