I remember in the early 1970s my Mom and Dad coming back from a trip to New Brunswick. They liked Antiques and looked for interesting items. She brought back 2 Chairs and we were not allowed to sit on them. In later years the Cat's slept in them and scratched up the upholstery, but they were comfy at least. She always said they were from the 1700s or early 1800s. Recently she gave me one, and she is about to give me the other one, which is different looking from this Chair.

In the 1980s a friend who visited us from France looked at them and said they were definitely not French ? .

so I guess Im looking for any answers as to what I have. How old is it ? Where was it made ? Does this have any value ? Is it worth restoring ? Any information is good, all is welcome. Thanks for your time....

Regman.

    Possibly from the 1920's to 1950's. I have several of these similar type chairs, there were several good furniture makers in Ontario who sold such chairs, they pop up occasionally nowadays, this one has some nice deep carving, but so hard to evaluate from a photo.
