As steve said, some of the pieces are definitely quarter sawn. It appears that most is rift sawn. Either way, they are fine looking, sturdy chairs. I'm guessing, out of some governmental office.
One of my favorite methods to darken oak is to apply Watco Dark Walnut. A couple coats should darken it quite a bit. After it cures well, usually 3-5 days, a few coats of a good varnish will have them looking just like they came out of the factory...except for the color.
