Bought this chair about 2 years ago from a thrift shop. Loved the design and the carved wood. Could you take a look at the 2 photos and advise when it was made, where, and value? Also, I know it's a side chair; does it have a specific name?

Have more photos if needed. Thanks very much in advance.


is the seat height taller than normal??

it used to have a woven cane seat and it was made around 1890 a late eastlake victorian style.

where it was made would be impossible to tell without a label.  there were about 5000 factories in operation in the USA at the time.

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. 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.


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.
