    ~ Hi CW Gang ~

    Vintage vanity / dresser chair. This was my Granny ( Dad's Mom ) piece of furiture she had in her bedroom. I remember it as a kid and us kids like to sit on it as it has a lower seat that regular chair. This is the original silk material on it from the day it was made. Started to get rough over the years as the ruffle is starting to come off, a few cats used it for a scratching post a bit, but over all I would have to say it must be at least 50 years old. Like I said I remember this as a kid. The underneath is pretty sturdy yet. I do not know if this item is older than that or not. I have just left it the way it was, all original condition. I looked around it on the bottom, and could not see any marks. Could be something under the material -- but I AIN'T touching that. LOL, It still has like twine string looping around the springs on the bottom. Again, all original

    Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!

      Probably horsehair under there. They don't spring these chairs at all now!

      Oh Rose...
      How wonderful!
      Things from Grandmothers are to be revered,
      Please keep the kitties away or were they "Grannies" kitties?

      ....@racer4four - Thanks for the wonderful comment!! You are probably right about the Horse-hair underneath. I do not care if the material is a bit tattered, the original material will stay with it for now. It HAS character !! LOL
      ....@Newfld - Thank you for the beautiful comment !! It is special to have this heirloom, but even more special when others love it too !!
      ....@Ms.CrystalShip - Thanks for the wonderful comment!! No they WERE not grannies kitties, they were us kids kitties ( house cats ) when we were younger. I know shame on us kids for letting kiddies do that...but kids will be Kids. LOL

      The lower chair in called a Slipper Chair. Used to lace high button shoes during the Victorian times.
