Can someone tell me a little bit about this chair?

Victoria_AlexisSeptember 5, 2011

Can someone tell me anything about this chair? It is very low to the ground and only has 1 arm.

What era is it from and is it antique? Any info would be appreciated.

I have never seen a one armed chair and had to find out about it. Here is an interesting article.

Thanks for the article. It was very informative. I tried to look up pictures of them and I also looked them up on ebay, but I can't seem to find any that look like mine at all.
Does the chair that I have look original? How would I be able to tell if it is an original or a reproduction?
There appears to be no markings on it at all.

It looks original to me, and maybe somewhat post-Eastlake?

The strapping underneath is a hint of originality for me. So is the amount of dust/grime in those nooks and crannies up the side of the back. And then there is the upholstery fabric.

No one would know how much something like this would be worth??
And sorry, I know nothing about this stuff. What years would "post-eastlake" consist of? Early 1900's?

As the link said, part of a parlor set...likely 1880 or so...I believe parlor sets went out by 1900.
There probably was a matching settee and gentleman's chair...or perhaps 2 chairs with arms.
Worth? Check completed sales on eBay.
