Anyone care to date this chair. There were two of them in a store in Sydney. I thought they were late 1940s myself.

Hard to tell, but I'd guess 50's.

I'm curious because I have had a feeling recently that it isn't a look that seems to appeal to the 30-40 YO audience.

Thoughts?

Yes, the market has dropped significantly. I can pick up good carpets at auction basically at will.

People aren't buying them, but I agree, they appeal to a lot of people. I think stuff will appeal to everyone for the right price. I doubt many of these buyers would pay the prices from 2000 to 2007.

I'm glad... I love these. I've bought about 10 in the last 4 years.

They are even reasonable at many dealers currently. IIRC, before 2007 the only rug dealer in my town sold nothing but 'investment grade' rugs that were insanely priced and would have actually made awful investments.

Heading out to Alameda Flea Market this morning. Looking for Tall wooden shop stools for our kitchen. Found one by the Northwest Chair Company of Tacoma Washington and now want a few more. The NWCC made hardwood stools for schools all over the Northwest in small and tall sizes.

Care to post a picture of what you're looking for? I'm often looking around at placed where I might run across one - architectural salvage, furniture consignment etc ( in the seattle/Tacoma area . . and I'd be happy to keep my eyes peeled for you.

Red Lantern, you are a true gent!

Here are the pics. The stools come in two sizes. A small child's stool size about 18" tall. Then there are the shop height stools at around 30" or so. We are looking for these taller ones. They can be painted or natural finish. My favorite one looks like it came from an art classrom and has a variety of paint colors dripping on the sides. Everything in our kitchen is clean and sparkling so I like to balance it with a well used stool. I'm just looking for sturdy ones.

They often have this Northwest Chair Company label (there were several variations of the design). Note that a distinctive feature of the stools is that they have a thick wire "X" brace across the bottom and two vertical wire braces attaching the seat to the top rung. Ones on good condition sell for $30-$40. Not expensive but well made.

Perhaps not the thread.you might be expecting under this title, but I am collector of golf antiquities. I specialize in all things golf prior to 1930 with a special emphasis on pre-1900 golf. My favorite pieces are golf art from the 1700's to late 1890s. Back in the day when people dressed up to play.

Found a first edition printing on a book written about my fathers side of my ancestry (not the Goomba side), which were early American settlers and important in the revolutionary war. Where did I find this obscure book? eBay, lol.
