Information About an Antique Chair

I would like information on this antique chair. Is it French, Italian or something else? Do you think it is an original, made in the 20's or 30's? I have spent numerous hours on the internet and have been to antique stores and no one can give me any information. Help please!

You can tell most about a chair by turning it upside down & looking at the joining, the workmanship, etc. Are there wooden pegs? Is there dove joining? Is it handcarved? What is the original finish? What sort of wood is it made of?

Is there a provenance which would help you to pin point the origin?

Answer those questions & you will know more about the chair!

I think it's a claw & ball foot chair. Look under it for a name. It could be worth lot of money if you can find somebody that knows about antiques & etc. Get more than one person to look at it, good luck.

Try looking at www.tias.com When you are there click on furniture and accessories, then type in chairs in the search line. There are pages and pages of chairs. tias stands for "the internet antique store" good luck
