    Hum... Oscar Spliethoff. Born 1895, died 1986. German immigrant and weaver at silk factory in 1940. Pennsylvania's Department of Labor and Industry established 1913. And, if I'm reading this thread correctly, the stamp wasn't required until 1937. That's not the date of your chairs, of course, just the earliest date for renovation.

    I would suggest contacting the owner. He may serve as historian and even have a photo archive that could include your chairs in historical interior shots.

    And finally... On the curb! Said it before, said it again. What's wrong with people?

    Thank you so much for your insight! I cannot believe the kind of beautiful things people just leave out.

    Any idea of what style they'd be considered?

    I wonder if the stamp was put on there when they were reupholstered then since they have the name of the establishment that owned them on it.

    That would be a logical assumption.

    They're late Victorian. Someone more knowledgable that I about furniture can provide more information.

    Very late Victorian; aesthetic movement elements shading into early Edwardian, ca. 1900-1910.
