thank you so much for your input! i'm telling you, i just couldn't figure these guys out. this really helps. now i know where to start! i originally purchased these to "make-over" but with so much history, i'm thinking they may be better left in their original state. thanks again!

The general look of this chair makes me think it could possibly be English. Most of this style of furniture was made with walnut in America, however in England they used oak, and this style lasted longer there, up into the 50's I've been told. Posted: 1:27 pm on October 28th
