    Hello, I need help!!!!!
    I found this chair in a house attic over looking the Hudson River (NY) about 35 years ago as I stated. It was in a pile of chair frames, about 100
    different styles, it was pretty amazing, but I must add the house was built
    around 1880. I have been looking for the last 6 months on the computer
    to not avail, reason being is it American or European, I really don't know
    where to start, please. Someone told me it was a Louis and I said, Louis
    who, but many people who see it know it by sight but cannot tell me any
    History on it except that it is old.
    Thank You, and have a Great Day
    PS. There are holes in the eyes, are they missing something?

      It looks like it could be Empire from France or England I would think it is Honduras Mahogany it would be worth reupholstering. The finish looks great if you clean it with restores-a-finish mahogany color the finish will look like new. And you would have a great looking piece.
