What is this chair style called?

Jacky1983June 11, 2013

Hi,
I have been gifted this gorgeous chair once belonging to my Nana.
I want to know what the style of chair is called as one person refferred to it as a jarrah chair (because she thought the arms were made of Jarrah wood) but others disagree.
Would also like to know if anyone could take a guess at how old it is?

Unless the colour of your photo is really off I doubt the wood is jarrah, as jarrah tends to be much darker red than that. Could be karri, which is rather springier than jarrah as well.

No older than the late 1930s to mid 1950s ... how old was your grandmother when she got married, and when was it?
