    inherited this chair when my cousin passed away a few years ago. It could possibly have belonged to my great-great grand parents, but I can't be certain. I would just like to know more about its origins.
    There doesn't appear to be a maker's mark any where on it. From my limited knowledge and a little research, I've found out that it is probably a Renaissance Revival Chair from the 19th century. The style is similar to those made by the J. S. Ford & Johnson company in Chicago/Cincinnati; however, I would like to know more. If anyone can offer any input or information, I would appreciated it.
