      It seems to be a repurposed antique sanitary chair or "potty chair".

      You can also search it as "commode chair"

      Thanks. Can you tell what era?
    4. mcheconi mcheconi, 2 years ago
      I would say late 1800s, early 1900s. Here you have a similar one from 1910:

      I don't believe your chair is a repurposed commode rocking chair as many rocking chairs of a certain era had leather or cane seats. My rough guess is that it is from the late 1800s to the 1920s or so. I'm trying to date a chair I have with the same detail and that's the best I've been able to determine so far.

      Not re purposed it was made this way. The pressed leather gargoyle seat was popular right up into the 50's. The plain crest board tends to make me think you are a bit generous with the dates you mention.
