How much do you think this chair is worth? They are about 50 years old and in great condition.  I have a pair of them.

Dear Leslie,

While your ladder-back chairs do have some age to them, not being true antique
examples, they are met with little interest in today's world, being of a
functionally obsolete design. Years ago Pennsylvania and New England Laddereback's
were quite popular, but today buyers a looking for more comfortable seating.

I feel that each of your chairs are valued at the $25. to 45. level.

Best Wishes,
