    Recent, 20th century, English (not American) style. Unknown hardwood since it is stained.

    Agree with Jeff. English Windsor.

    Not earlier than 1930s, but could be much later.

    Wheel back Windsor chair. Probably elm. Age is difficult as this style has been around for a while but looking at general condition etc, would go with early 20th century

    Needs some wax to help close up the gaps in the seat. It looks thirsty, feed it, you'll be amazed at the difference

    It's got the "Crinoline" stretcher which is a nice feature on english windsors. Word has it that these stretchers were originally developed in the english countryside and called a "spur stretcher" to keep horse riders from damaging the chair with their spurs. City folks "stole" the design as their own and gave it a new name, "crinoline stretcher" after those hoop skirt thingys women wore at the time made from crinoline.
    Dunno if that is true or not but i like the story, ditto the stretchers!
