this chair was originaly stuffed with hay or straw and horse hair,the craftsmanship is high quality as there is no dowels as the dowelling is part of the legs and it is pressure fit joints,they are like a cone fit,i believe the wood is walnut dark and light,i cannot find any chair loke this one on the net or any books. can someone tell me where it is from and the approximate age,it is simulr to french made and also william and mary style, i found the chair in the garbage and refinished it myself

    the chair is walnut, the arms are simular to 18th century chippendale,the front legs are simular to louis xvi, the hardware nuts and bolts date back to 1790s
