Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I would love to help.

The next step would be for me to see pictures so that I can get visual clues of the date and value.

Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures. Add pictures of the item and of any marks on the bottom.

Hello!

Thanks for great photos. You have no idea how much this helps me with your item and I really appreciate it!

Russmore was a name trademarked by the Tobey Furniture Company of Chicago. Your chair was made from 1902 to 1912 when this series was produced. Intended to look like the more expensive Arts and Crafts mission oak pieces and Spanish and Gothic Revival of the time, this company made the more affordable dining sets. This chair falls into the Gothic Revival style. They also made pieces for the Grand Rapids Chair Company to distribute with their tag, also with RUSSMORE paper labels. This upholstery was redone in the 1940's-50's.

This chair has a current value of $75 to $100.00.
