Identifying an Old Chair

I have been looking all over for this chair, but can't find any info on it. I am trying to figure out what era it came from. Hopefully you can give me some info.

Look underneath for identifying marks. This could be an old piece, or a knockoff

Normally a chair will have a mark or some type of label under the seat. I see the seat of the chair seems to be missing. This can make it a bit harder to identify in your case. You might want to take a photo to an antique dealer to see if they can help you out.

If it is original, it appears to be a late 1800s Victorian parlor or bedroom chair.

I think the face is the North Winds, but I am having a senior moment to be positive.

To confirm what you have, it is best to have an antique dealer take a peak at it in person to look at the condition and verify the age. They can see and feel things I can't....like how it is constructed, if it wobbles, has internal damage/cracks/smells etc.

If you are asking to value, the dealer can tell you what it would be valued where you are and in the condition that yours is in.

Generally (in most US markets) a PRISTINE chair like yours sells on average for $150-$200. Yours needs the seat and looks to have some wear, so that will lower the value. The one caveat is that if it is a famous brand like Stomps - Burkhardt or Stickley (which I don't think it is, but if it were) it would be valued MUCH higher.

All furniture values are regional and dictated by supply and demand. I would love to hear back what an expert tells you and what your market will bear for it!
