I bought 2 of these matching Baker chairs at an estate sale for $50.00 each.  I plan to have them re-upholstered.  Can you tell me anything about their age/style etc?  I'm open to any suggestions regarding my desire to restore them.  Thank you.

Answer
Hi Rita,

Nice buy on the chairs!


They were most likely made in the 1960's - 70s, in the English Regency style.
These are formal chairs and I recommend that you do a little research for a more
appropriate style fabric for your re-upholstery job.

Best Wishes,
