This was purchased by my dad at an auction in Kansas in the 1960's. It shows a monk making wine. It was discovered in 1970 that this chair was like similar one in Oberlin, Kansas. The other chair shows two renaissance period men in a wine cellar on the backrest. I do not know what happened to the other chair, but would love to know where it is now.
The other chair was featured in the Wichita Eagle newspaper on 01/27/ 1970 and that owner and my mom exchanged letters about their chairs. My mom recalls Gallo winery wished to purchase the two chairs but my mom wanted to keep it. My understanding is the chair is a few hundred years old. We still have this chair in Dallas, Texas.
Thanks for reading.
