Hello, I've had this chair for years. It was placed outside of an old estate home for pickup and I grabbed it before the trash truck came. It's got an A.A. Forces in paint stencil on the bottom which date this type of marking to 20 June 1941 to 18 September 1947, no way to tell if it was new or used when stenciled. There is an Air Force Base nearby that was formed in the early 40's as an Army Airfield, so it might be related to that location. If anyone has information on the style and origin of this cool chair I'm interested. It looks like oak and is comfortable and well made.

Not sure if I want to restore it or keep using it in my garage in its present condition. Any thoughts appreciated.
