I would like any information you may have on this chair.It is on wheels but these are not the origional ones. The seat has hore hair upholstery but has been covered with this red material some time earlier. It reclines and the foot stool has 3 positions. It has nothing broken and has origional varnish finish and cushions. Seems to be mid 1800's my guess. Thank you! John
