QUESTION: Yes, that would help. I sent the wrong pics.

Answer
oak dining chairs made around 1890-1900.
part of the 'golden oak' era.  if they are tight, use some Briwax in a light oak color and wax the leather and the wood.  should take about 45 minutes per chair.  do it a couple of times, you will be amazed at the difference.

after waxing they woudl sell retail, if they are tight at 150 per chair in a store.

hope this is helpful

thanks
