This is one of a set of chairs that is a family heirloom. The "back" story is that it came from Scotland. "The Stephens Shipyard was (and might still be) on the River Clyde in Scotland. They built luxury vessels, and the woodwork was superb. When the outfitting department was between projects, Stephens would have his finish carpenters make furniture for him, his family and others. One member of the family immigrated to San Francisco in the latter part of the 19th century and brought these chairs with him. They have come down through the family to the present day."
I'm curious what kind of value these chairs may have.
