Antique Chair  

Hi Robert, I inherited this beautiful chair from my mother. I don't know anything about it other than she indicated that it has been in her family for over 100 years. The chair measures 23w x 18d x 29h. Are you able to identify the possible origin, style, age and period? Thanks in advance!

it is a window seat or used at the foot of a bed.  wood is birch stained with analine dye to a mahogany color.  the seat may be mahogany veneer.

made around 1890-1910 at the earliest.  

without a label there is no way anyone can tell you the manufacturer as there were thousands in operation.

the style is a blending of several styles now called colonial revival style.

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.
