    Its possible that this is an example of what is considered a "bankers chair" produced for the executive market from the mid-to late '30's thru early '60's. Past examples I have seen were from an old office building that one of the rooms had a long conference table with about eight chairs, all with the same style of design, and all made from the same wood..(in this case the wood was oak) There was no label on bottom of either table, or chairs, however since this was in Canada, I suspect that this furniture was manufactured here (problaby in Ontario)

    I used to have a chair that looked very similar. It was a banker's chair. If yours is like the one I had it is very very heavy, and the wood is smooth and hard. I have to do some research about the manufacturer of the chair, it escapes me right now. I do remember a small oval-shaped brass plate attached to my chair. Look for discoloration on yours, perhaps yours had one at some point and it fell off. My was also made in 1940's or 50's. Enjoy the chair.

    The H.Krug Furniture Co. Ltd. from Kitchener, Ontario was one of the manufacturers of these "banker's chairs". Also, if you have a piece of Krug Furniture and it says "Berlin, Ontario", then this was made before 1919 as this was the former name of Kitchener. Krug still exists see http://www.krug.ca. Hope this helps.
