The Auntie Wicker Twins – Lake Dora! Buy Them, Pick Them Up At The Show!
Anyone out there want some Wicker Sisters for their boat? Well, it looks like their Aunts moved to Florida years ago, and will be at the Lake Dora show waiting for you. The Aunti Wicker Twins. Slightly different but cooler! Yup, the real deal, and all you need to do is come to the show and pick them up. I will warn you all, I am going to bid on them. Hey I need to at least try and have a family reunion. If you have a 25 Sportsman, these are perfect, or a U22 without a middle seat.
These sisters could be???? the original, and extremely hard to find. And you already have a blue interior, your head might explode, cause BAM, here they are. And get this… YOU HAVE A REAL EXCUSE TO COME TO THE BIG SHOW! Just about 30ish days away! AHHHHHHH! I can smell the warmth now. Stuff like this gets all my motors running again! Woohooo!

They look awful narrow. After Tuesdays paczki binge I had better get some measurements before bidding any more.
What is “Seald Sweet” in the header ?
Matt – where you in charge of spelling for the Growers Coop in a previous life ?
These ‘came with’ our 1937 cc cruiser when we bought her in 1989. Their linage and vintage are unknown, but seem to have followed the boat around. As you can see, there is a design woven into the back and arms that, with equal measures of imagination and delusion, appear to be repeated cc’s. Many years ago I met the marina owner who serviced this boat when new, knew the owners well, and insisted the chairs were there in 1938. I don’t know if that is true but it is my story and I’m sticking to it.
My grandfather had four of these on his front porch back in the 50’s/60’s when I was a kid. Same chair with the same pattern woven into the top. They were always on his porch and never used on the family 31 ft. CC Sedan cruiser. Crazy how you remember details like that!
That design does show up in the 1950 catalog
No Mark, Seals must have done the sealing….my thoughts anyway….all things being possible on this site!

None of the chairs shown are an exact match to the one in The Wicker-Kraft add, although Matt’s sisters look closest. And I have a pair of another version on my cruiser. Are wicker chairs ever listed on hull cards?
The Seald Sweet is a citrus company in Florida. Matt posted an old fruit label from what they put on shipping cartons of citrus. I collected citrus labels for years and then donated them.
Here are a couple more of the Seald Sweet labels. There were 1,000’s of labels and some you could not post today. I kept those…
