I did a little research and learned that in the late 80's my mom decided to splurge on four hand crafted Thomas Moser dining chairs. At the time they were about $600 a pop (now they are $1075). Clearly my mom didn't tell my dad how much they were until after the fact because THAT IS SO MUCH MONEY!
The four Moser chairs are still around our dining room table, and in pretty near perfect condition.
In one of the first few episodes of The Blacklist, a psycho killer breaks into the home of our heroine and holds her husband hostage in their dining room. But of course, I was distracted by the chair behind her head. It looked so much like the ones my parents have (but not the same).
