Hello! I purchased this chair at a junk shop and I was told it was from a plantation in Clarksville, TN. It is straw filled and looks to have the original finish. The wood on the very front of the chair seems charred and the rest of the wood is in so-so condition, jointed in sections as it curves around the body.
I would just like to know what it is and the approximate age before I do any restoration. I bought it for no other reason than I liked it. I don't expect there to be any great value but would like a little history.
Thanks in advance for any info!
