A chair I picked up for free from a dear dear friend. I believe it was his mother's and she passed on and he gave it to me.

I'm a sucker for twole (sp)? But I have to admit this turned out just beautiful. I was proud to display this piece and it sold within an hour. As you can tell, its a vintage chair, it had the horsehair and criss cross strong springs when I tore it down to reupholster. The customer just loved it. She bought it for her granddaughter
