I bought at a flea market and really trying to place maker and/or time period. Would love to have some idea of value. I paid $15 each for four of them

    Hi,
    Those chairs look to be Gunlocke. It's a company from upstate New York that has been in business for over 100 years. Try searching "gunlocke chair pics". I have just fallen in love with Gunlocke chairs and I have 3 different models (and colors). I don't know where you're located but if you on the east coast, Gunlocke chairs usually fetch a high price on craigslist. They go for A LOT on ebay as well. I am hoping to some day find a spectacular deal like the one you did! :-). If anyone is looking to sell orange or green Gunlockes pls email ME! (if they are reasonably priced that is).

    I forgot to mention: If you look on the bottom of your chairs you may see a tag with the Gunlocke name or a letter "G" in a circle. Those are only 2 of the ways that Gunlocke marks their furniture. They have a very good site (Gunlocke.com) and I think thats where I found an ID guide with all the "marks" they use. They also have an interesting section of the site called, "my Gunlocke chair" with stories from actual owners about how they acquired their treasure. http://www.gunlocke.com/mygunlockechair/WelcomePage.cfm
