Would like to talk about lions head mahogany desk chair

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Year made and shipping costs to Bellevue, Wa. 98004 Any repairs to wood?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Would it go with 1860 A Napoleon III mahogany and brass inlaid "Bonheur du jour desk"?
