Question
Front
Front  
Hi, can you tell me if this is an authentic original low back windsor or a reproduction?  The wood used, and the current value of it?  There is no metal screws or nails.  Thank you for your valuable insight, it is much appreciated.

Answer
Hi Michelle,

What you have is a mid 20th century "stylized" example of an original 18th century
Windsor Chair.

Totally machine made and built to a low selling price when new. I value the chair
in the $30.- $25. range.

Best Wishes,
