So this is the newest love of my life, a vintage Crestwood French Provincial armchair. It is in mint, unused condition . It has a distressed, cream painted carved wood frame with what looks like fisted claws at the ends of the arm. It is beautifully tufted, and upholstered in an eye-catching lime and gold silk-type brocade. It has a Crestwood label under the cushion, as well as the original furniture store label from where it was originally purchased from in Mayfield Heights, Ohio. I initially thought it was from the 50s or 60s due to the style and color, but the "do not remove under penalty of law" tag, mentions about the item "being in accordance" with upholstery laws of 1928 and 1929. I suppose its possible that it's just that the upholstery laws never changed between 1929 and whenever this chair was made. There is a blue State of Ohio 2-cent tax stamp on that tag, too. Anyone have any idea how old this wild beauty is???
