Can anyone tell me about this chair that was passed down in my family?

Wow! This is neat!

Do you know the approximate age? It appears old, but often there are new chairs made to look old.

Are you in the US? This looks like a South Asian gentleman (elder maybe) face smoking a hookah, which I find so unusual.

I am familiar with what we see in the US of chairs with carved faces of the North Wind and there is a popular theme of sailors with pipes, but this is quite unique.

My best suggestion would be to find a good vintage/antique store and take it there to see what you have and the value (if you are looking to sell).

I did a little digging since I found it so unusual and there is nothing I can find in any of my sources (most are US based so that may be why they aren't helpful).

My other thought is it may be hand made/hand carved, which depending on where you are located and the artist, could add value to it.

Since I love to learn about unusual pieces, I would be most grateful if you would post back what you learn!

Thanks for sharing!

The number on the bottom is not enough for me to identify it. If no one else here can help you, maybe a dealer can.

Too bad there are no other marking on this chair. Here is a great guide to help you out some so that you can learn more about this chair. If you had any other marking on the it would be easier for us to help out. Check out this guide and if this is not a good start you will need to contact a dealer to ask them more questions. www.thesprucecrafts.com/know-your-antique-chair-styles-148737
