This recliner chair was purchased in the 1980's from a Boston area antique store. The spring seat mechanism was in bad shape so we replaced it & had new cushions upholstered, but the wood structure was/is in great shape. Otherwise nothing has been done other than furniture polish. I'm not sure what kind of wood it is but very solid & heavy, appears to be maybe Oak. It has wheels on all four legs. There are no metal screws or brackets holding the structure of the chair together, however the support underneath for the seat does have some old looking metal screws. The adjustable recliner rod is some type of metal with a worn gold color finish. The chair has been in our living room since then. I do not see a manufacturer mark but seems like it originally may have had a portion of a paper label. We were told it was a Morris Chair but knowing nothing about that when we bought it, we had no idea numerous manufacturers had copied the style since the original. I need to sell it now for financial reasons & just want to get a base value so I won't lose money from a fast talking buyer :) I will be trying to sell locally since I can't afford shipping or the risk of scammers. Value help from anyone viewing this or local interest in purchasing will be very much appreciated. Located in the Triad area of NC.
