I thought it might be helpful if I re-sent my question about the chair I think is home made. You requested more photos which I am sending again to show where the tool markings were.  You wrote back and said the markings were from a band saw.  

I have had the chair for 60 years retrieved from my mother's junk room.  I wanted to know the approximate age and value.

Answer
This is a manufactured chair.  However, even manufactured chairs have some hand work although it is generally in the fitting and some joinery. We call that hand assisted machine work.  I have to go back to the full view pictures for age and value.

thanks

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.
