|Comment||Thank you Fred so much. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you taking the time to share your knowledge and perspectives with me. And your suggestion of what to do next was extremely helpful. i really didn't want to throw the chairs away. You gave me a much better alternative that might help a charity raise some cash and help me find the chairs a good home! Regards, -Jim|

I will attempt to answer questions about American antique furniture, including construction details, style, period, manufacturers, care, repair and storage. I do not have any background in appliances, musical instruments, sewing machines, trunks, lighting, clocks or children's and baby furniture and will not respond to questions about those items.
I ran an antique furniture restoration business for twenty years. I am a nationally syndicated columnist on the subject of antique furniture for such publications as Antique Week and New England Antiques Journal. I have produced one video on the subject of furniture identification and my book "HOW TO BE A FURNITURE DETECTIVE" is now available.I have also published articles in Antique Trader, Chicago Art Deco Society, Northeast Magazine, Victorian Decorating and Lifestyles, Professional Refinishing, Antiques and Art Around Florida and Antique Shoppe.
