"The Real Deal"
I have an old courting chair thats believed to be english. It has a seat on 2 sides facing each other seperated by a wood bar. Will post pictures soon, very nicely made.

No but i will keep that in mind.. My sister bought it. She is a world traveler mostly for work and house is full of stuff from far away. She had it for a long time, then it made its way to my mom and pops house, thats a normal ritual when sis is changing things up. I would say its 1800's tine period, made by hand, and very detaiiled. I have no room at our place since im out numbered by females. I just retreat to the shop with my dogs..
Jason, is that the chair you use when the wife says “We need to talk”? It sounds like it would offer you a little protection...........
How did you date your Lane Chest? I have a very similar waterfall front Lane we picked up at a church rummage sale.
There should be a 6 digit serial number on the bottom. It is the date backwards. Example: Mine is Ser.# 349130 = 03/19/43How did you date your Lane Chest? I have a very similar waterfall front Lane we picked up at a church rummage sale.
Love the old stuff, don't care if brown furniture is out of fashion!
My two foster “nephews “ boys can’t wait for me to kick the bucket. I have a 72 c10 that I drive and a 67 ElCamino that I’m about to get started on.My wife and I both love old things, furniture , dishes, guns, motorcycles, you name it. However....the younger generations do not care about that stuff at all. Ask estate sale people, antique dealers, second hand store owners. It is hard to give some of that stuff away. So enjoy it now for yourselves, it is pretty much the end of the road for lots of that stuff. Sterling flatware is melted down, furniture languishes in barns, kids inherit old cars and motorcycles from their folks and can't get them listed on eBay and Craigslist fast enough.
