Love this chair. Sticker has been removed. Believe it to be a Baker as we have owned a similar chair in the past. Value? Thank you for your time!

Dear EAW,

While you may "believe" that this chair may have been made by the Baker furniture company,
I do not. Having a "similar" chair in the past marked Baker and having THIS chair are not
the same.

I base my opinion on the carving work on this chair, which has been done on a duplicator
machine and not reworked or cleaned up, which is what your finer furniture companies do
before applying a finish.

As for value, with the tastes of today's buyers, anyone looking to acquire furniture in the French style today are going to be looking for a much finer example of this particular form, leaving takers that are looking for merely a chair that is in clean, usable condition, to sit in.  Upholstery has gotten too expensive for the typical buyer of used furniture.

Therefore, I place a value range of $200-$250. on this particular chair.
