Identifying a Vintage Chair

Would someone be able to assist me in the identification of this chair? There is one marking present, on the underside of the seat stamped into a brass plate. The marking reads BT. 51766

That mark does not sound familiar. What do they want for it?

If it is under 20 I say scoop it up if the answers to the questions below follow suit:

1. Does the brass plate seem like an original? How and where is it affixed--underneath on the leather or on the wood? Is it possible that the rest of the name is worn off?

2. Is the damage to the front an easy repair? I can see the damage, but the angle of it makes repair potential hard to determine.

3. Is all of the wood in good shape?

4. Does it pass the sit test (no wobbles or creaks)?

5. No bad smells?

MCM like chairs are hot right now, so if it was cheap enough, and you could fix the damage, this may be a lovely flip piece!

Post back what you decide!!

The marking doesnt give an indication of who the manufacturer is. If you are not planning to resell it, purchase it for your own enjoyment if the price is right.

Looks like Pghgirl covered it all but if you plan to resell it and can buy it at the right price, you may be able to find out more from an appraiser.

There are a lot of free online appraisers but you would need better pictures and pictures of all side front and bottom showing brass plate (and no price stickers).
