or know someone who does? This has been in my family since the 1960's, and an appraisal obtained in the mid-60's stated that this piece was made before 1860. That is about all I know about it, except that the style is Empire and the wood is said to be flame mahogany. Oh, and my aunt found it in someone's basement in Northern Ohio.
The upholstery is not original; I had it recovered in the late 80's. The fabric is a sturdy cotton; purple moire stripes separated by butterscotch gold stripes. I also have a chair that matches it, but it has doggy damage on the front of the right arm. Muffin cut her baby teeth on it. If you are interested, let me know and I can email the link to the ebay auction site, where you can see more photos.
