Please help ID chaise lounge

I came across this chaise lounge while cleaning out my parents basement. Could anyone tell me if it is junk for the dump or worth trying to sell. I can not find any markings on it anywhere.

I believe the correct term is 'fainting couch' although the destinction escapes me at the moment. I have one with feet & shape very much like yours - which is unusual because I googled everything last summer & didn't find a close match.

Here is a link that might be useful: Fainting couch thread

Thank you for the proper terminology. Yes mine is quite similar to yours and I am not finding anything about it either.

Early 1900s, probably not the original upholstery.

Probably could sell on Craigslist easily for $100 or so as is.
