Dear Mr. Klein,

I inherited 2 chairs from my grandparents.  They spent most of their lives in the Oklahoma City area, but they originally came from Nebraska.  I am interested in finding out the history/value of these chairs.  Thank you for your help in the matter.

Sincerely,

Peggy Chambers

Answer
I need more pictures showing the back and under the seat.  also close and clear of the wood and seat so i can identify the wood.

are there any markings on the underneath of the chair.

send them as "attachments" to one email and include the post.  do not send a link to an online picture hosting site please.

thanks
