    Posting for a cousin and we're just looking for any helpful information on what this is. I can get more pictures if needed, e.g. marks or signatures or the like. Thanks in advance! Chair.jpg

    Eastlake style chair. I would call it a parlor chair or side chair.
    Caned seat not wicker.
    Late 1800s. Good chance it is walnut.

    Adding:
    It would benefit from a rub down with Restor-A-Finish.

    If I may add a cautionary tale? The seat is machine-woven cane, not hand-woven. You can tell the difference by the continuous spline around the edges of the seat holding the caned sheet in. A seat requiring hand weaving will have continuous holes drilled all around the edges. So, if you DO use it as a step-stool, it will be less expensive to have it replaced. With average daily use, and if you don't own any boys, this current seat should last about 4 years.

    Sexism! :eek:

    Actually, Cluttered pretty much nailed it in her first response. Nice little early Eastlake walnut side chair. I'd call it 1880.
