That is amazing I have one just like it I bought at a Frederick MD auction for $25. I love it. I put a wick bottom on it because it was gone. It is great chair. What is the best way to stain the chair. Mine is really dry. Also any idea of value? Would love to know if I got a bargain. Thanks so much!

I believe this is a Delaware Chair!  I am writing an article on the company right now.  I own a very similar chair.  I have a link to a scanned version of their catalog.  they were in business from 1870-1930.

I have one identical but it is not a rocker and has the same with the seat but my husband will do a great job fixing it.  The color is lighter, though!  When was it made and the value?

Expertise

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. robertsantiques@cox.net You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.

Experience

I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
