I don’t know how old this chair is. Its in rough shape for sure but it has sentimental value to the owner, so its in the process of being refinished. Lots of hand work to do here. The owner doesn’t have a time schedule to have it refinished so we’ll get at it as time permits.
You can see there’s a bit of reeding detail in the four legs. One of the back main spindles was replaced some time ago with what looks to be a shovel handle. A resourceful bunch they were! The seat is in really bad shape but it is to remain as is. All that has to be done is to strip the paint.
