Take a look a the bottom of the seat, might be a makers mark?

repop = reproduction .  and yours looks  like the real deal .  probably worth sum bucks .

thank you all for the comments regarding the chair. my wife would rather i not cut it up either, so at this point i'm outnumbered. the saw still calls however.

NO!!!   Neat old chair.  Unless it was rickety and not fixable, I would want to save it.  Then I would wonder what the heck I was going to do with it.  Bargain.   You call.

i searched online for Turned Spindles, found some that were similar, woodworkers supply, rockler hardware

Comment by Darryl Tuttle on March 3, 2019 at 4:13am

that chair just seems too good to be cut up...i'd set it aside and think about it for a bit. 

Comment by Daniel Walter on March 2, 2019 at 5:47pm

shite, as UJ says. pick, the chairs on the site don't even have shaped spindles. they don't have arm rests though...? pieces of the spindles are perfect for my new git..... thank you. what do you mean by "repop"? hate to sound like an idiot. i must be an idiot, spending an hour setting up the table saw to cut the fretboard off a factory Ibanez neck. ended up cutting into the truss rod, didn't think there was one in there. i wanted the neck, not the fretboard.

and it does have the "tail support" piece that they want to charge extra for. what now?.........i have the saw in my hand.

I'd  get someone to look at it . even the repop wisdsor braced bow back chairs are close to a grand .

Comment by Daniel Walter on March 2, 2019 at 5:14pm

OMG pick. how do you find these things? it may be too late.......i do love the chair, but nobody seems to sell 13/32 dowels. the japanese saw is to, now I'm torn. thanks bra! (as they say in hawaii).
