Can you attach images of the chair, manufacturer's plate and any other markings? That will help. You can use the paper clip icon in your reply box to attach photos.

Hi there,

I have several photos, both assembled, and of its various components. Tried to attach them all, but the paperclip icon wouldn't allow me to attach any. Don't know why; they're standard .jpg files. Any ideas?

Additional info: all the chair's components have now been nickel plated, and the upholstery is in the leather shop as we speak. There's no manufacturer's plate that I've seen, only "Koken" on the footrest, and a stamped number (P5086) on the plate that houses the fluid filler cap. Let me know whether you need anything further (or if you know how I can send you the photos). Thanks.

Best regards,

Wayne DeBord
