From one of the better auction houses near me...

http://decorativearts.waddingtons.ca/10june2009/catalogue/240/0248/

...to go with RFs recently posted urn; a steal for 400 if it's Roycroft...ahhhh yah that's it, Roycroft Rolling Eyes Wink

kinda interesting chair nonetheless, but just for show, not very comfy - why pad the back but not the seat and if you lean right or left it might collapse

I like it, but it sure looks English to me.

I doubt Roycroft; if it were American with such heavy English influence it could be Stickley Brothers. I'm inclined to agree with Klay, though; it's English.

Very cool, I like the look. Definitely European. Could be a good 'naughty chair' for the kids.

I'm having a ball and learning so much looking back at the old posts. The chair that was for sale at Waddington's was by Ford & Johnson.

Great call...I hadn't taken a good look at that catologue before. There are 5-8 forms that I've definetly seen before, some more than once.

Not Roycroft, but a good looking chair
