Chair style question

Posted by uncgirl73 (My Page) on

I recently purchased this chair and wanted to see if anyone knows what style it is or how old it might me. I know it's not the original fabric because I can see the edge of another piece under the bottom.

Interestng ... with the low back, it looks like it's the chair from a bedroom vanity

Date? 1930s-1940s

Here is a link that might be useful: similar, but armless

That's a very pretty chair! Have you also posted this question on the home decor forum?

RE: Chair style question

Hmm...I agree with lazy gardens that it looks like a chair from a bedroom vanity or something similar. As for date, I would've put it somewhere in the 1940s but I could be wrong - I don't have a whole lot of experience with old chairs (new ones, sure) and am just going from my very vague past experiences.

RE: Chair style question

I agree with Lazy Gardens. My late aunt had a bedroom set in a similar design, and it was from the mid 40's with the pieced veneer faced drawers. Kind of a poor man's version of Art Deco style during and after WWII

I'd go back a little more. Twenties early thirties.
