Trying to identify origin/materials of unique chair
My wife bought the chair pictured below at a garage sale. I really like it but have never seen anything similar. The arms are rough looking because they seem to be constructed from the same thin strips as the rest of the chair but interlaced or weaved together.
What is most perplexing about it is that I don't know what material is used in the construction. It is not wicker/rattan, and although it has a metallic sound when tapped or dragged on a hard floor it is non-magnetic, so not made of steel. I tried to carefully file a thicker area underneath but could not see anything but more white.
I don't know if it is a helpful clue, but there are small holes, spaced about 2" apart around the perimeter of the chair base, the base of the seat and the arms. There are no labels or marks on the chair or cushion. The dimensions are 33' high x 21" wide and deep.
As I said, I very much like the chair so I have no intentions of selling it, but would not mind an estimate of value.
