My Mom and I were leaving the neighborhood one day, and a man was putting this chair out by the road. He was moving, and couldn't take it with him.
He told us we could take it, and also gave us the matching foot stool.
My Mom, the upholsterer, made it new cushion covers! She picked a beautiful floral patterned fabric. As you can see, you can change it's degree of recline in the back by moving a long peice of wood to different positions.
I have always felt it was probably crafted in the 50's. Maybe 60's. Does anyone have a good guess, or idea? It is just the best little chair (it sits close to the ground). Don't you just love these WIDE arms??? They come in handy while watching TV while eating! Donovan loves it cause he can have his mac n cheese while watching Spongebob Squarepants!!!
We have had the pleasure of loving it for the past 6 years or so!
