Mahogany Arm Chair ca.1930

The arm chair I am currently working on along side the rocker and the sofa is similar to the rocker in construction and probably dates to the same period. There was no indication as to the manufacturer, but I can say that it was made in a factory. The primary wood used is mahogany and the secondary is maple.

The Finish on the chair was not the original. It was a polyurethane that had been applied several years ago and had yellowed and cracked. Below are photos of the arm chair before and after the upholstery and finish were removed and also a photo of the repairs being made.

  1. Hi, I have a Frank S Harden Co. solid wood armchair rocker, with an aladdin lamp embossed on the backrest. It's not uphostered, very dark wood, in good condition. Any idea what this might be worth? Or anything about it? The tag was partially ripped off, and only shows the company name and town.
