Question
Chair
Chair  
Hello,

I found chair at a thrift store the other day and was wondering if you could tell me from what era/decade it might be from and what it might be worth?

Thank you

Answer
from 1880-1900s, late victorian chair.

after cleaning up and waxing it would retail in a shop at 75$

the original seat was cane, which is what the holes were for under the present seat bu the present seat with the holes drilled in it was common in this era as well.
