Please help me identify this chair. I just inherited a table & chairs from my 92 y/o grandmother.


I've never tried to create an http link so I apologize if my entire photostream pops up.

Not sure what sort of an ID you want....they are 1930's chairs with a sort of Jacobean revival leg.

RE: Identify Dining Room Chairs

Thank you for responding. I am clueless when it comes to antiques. If I ever wanted to sell, how would my description read??? The only antique terms I know is chippendale or early american or ladder back chair or shield chair.

Clueless! :-)

RE: Identify Dining Room Chairs

You could say something like "Jacobean Revival chairs with curved top rail, splat back with incised design, turned front legs, dark walnut stain and avocado green vinyl padded drop-in seat".

RE: Identify Dining Room Chairs

You might add..."set of (how ever many you have) in excellent condition"...if they all look like the one pictured.
