Mahogany chair by S&S?

I rescued this chair from a friends load of stuff for the dump. It had the insignia "S&S" on the bottom when I took it apart. Does anyone know what furniture company that would be, or age of this frame? Maybe in the Michigan area?

No, it is not painted, it is varnished. The man that did it, had to use some stain on it to even out the color. Yes, I love the shape of the back.

RE: Mahogany chair by S&S?

There are so many furniture manufactories, antique distributors, and refinishers with those initials and company names, unless one were familiar with the logo itself, I'm afraid they'd be a pain to track down. Especially if it's out of business now.

It is a lovely chair and well worth the salvage.

RE: Mahogany chair by S&S?

My post titled "S&S logo" does include a picture of the stylized logo. It is probably turn of the century, so I would assume that the company is no longer in business. I do love the shape of the chair.
