* Please note, some chairs are constructed in such a way that the seat frame or chair back has to be disassembled to do the work. For this reason, an additional cost for caning or weaving will be involved.
This type of caning looks the same as a hand lace cane, but is machine woven and installed as a sheet. The sheet of press cane is hand formed and glued into a groove in the frame. Pressed cane became available in the early 1900’s as a less costly way to produce the look of hand lace cane. Press cane is difficult to remove as the “spline” that hold the cane in place is glued into the channel on the frame. Like hand lace caned pieces, pressed cane typically last 20 to 30 years with normal use. Cost is determined by the inch of material used. It usually ranges from $95 to $245 per seat and double that if the chair back is also caned. The current price is $1 per square inch.
