    Hi, I hope you can help me. I have spent a ridiculous amount of hours trying to find a similar chair online so that I can have some knowledge about it and know how to price it. This is what I do know about it...it may have come from the family of a dear woman I knew that would be around 115 years old if she was alive today. She was single most of her life, with no pets or children, therefore it is in good condition, EXCEPT for the fact there are two fairly professional repairs to the wood in areas that are difficult to see. Yes, it is a shield-back chair, but online I only see open design shields, not solid carved wood like this one. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hello and welcome.
    If you go back to your post the Edit button will be showing near the bottom.
    Click Edit, More Options, Full Size next to the pictures.
    That way people on phones will be able to see them.

    Your chair appears to be late 1800s to 1910ish.
    Probably not American. Most likely had a cane seat that was replaced with needlepoint.

    I believe these fanciful designs were popular in the UK during the Edwardian era.

    A very well chosen needlepoint. Adds rather than subtracts (which is often the case.)

    Yeah, I dunno, don't think american, out of my area of interest though.
    That repaired broken leg will hurt value quite a lot, it's considered a structural repair.

    Yeah, thinking 1910-1920. The repair lessens the value considerably. Neat post-Nouveau look but not getting a big $ vibe from this.

    Edwardian English is spot-on.
