This is another chair from my husbands family. We haven't been able to find a label. It does have small wooden wheels on each of the front legs. We'd appreciate any information anyone might be able to share we us.

    That's a French style fauteuil chair. These chairs didn't have casters until the 19th century, so it could be a Victorian-era revival of the Louis XVI style. It's Louis XVI Neoclassical style because of the tapered legs and squarish frame.

    I know this because I wrote the French chairs overview. :)

    Lisa - thanks for the info. It's nice to finally know what to call it when people ask. I'll have to post more of our antiques. I really enjoy learning about them. Thanks again.

    Lisa - I just read your article on French chairs. It was full of interesting facts and quite enjoyable to read. You certainly know your stuff.
