On the left, heavy bench made with straight back so presumably a hall chair to go flush against the wall, with threaded end metal rods through each stretcher! The heaviest weight to size chair I've ever found. On the right "Less is More"; in worse shape than it looks, Canadian, Jacques Guillon cord chair, circa 50's. In the middle, a real mystery. Appears to be Stickley Bros. 382 1/2 by dimensions and feature match, but on-line pictures show no pegging or limited pegging and spline seat boards (or can't tell) and slightly different stretcher dimensions/layout. This one is not splined but get this, it's pegged 30 times! Every stretcher/brace is pegged and the two big ones are double pegged. On the bottom, cryptic EXP stencil and remnants of a rectangular paper label. The closest match is the 382 1/2 but is it or is it not SB? Oddly, the catalog pics for 382 1/2 don't show the double stretcher on the side while on-line pics have the double side stretchers. There is a similar LJG model but with a different style saddle seat. It is likely not a Krug copy because to the best of my knowledge, Krug didn't peg because they didn't necessarily use full tenon, plus this is not in the two Krug catalogs I have. I wonder what the EXP is for? Export/Experimental??? Total purchase price for three chairs, and I'm not kidding here....$25. Cool
