weird ladderback chair coincidence
So I posted several months ago now concerning a nice old ladder back chair I bought. About a month ago I found one that is constructed so similarly that i'm convinced these chairs are either from the same "school" of southern chairmaking, or were built by the same chair maker/manufacture during the mid to late 1800s. I've reseated them both in shaker tape, as their original seats were too far gone to save.
Can anyone offer any suggestions on where to continue researching these chairs and who might have made them?
