Topic tags/keywords: question

A friend of mine offered to give me this chair for free, so there was no way I was going to turn that down. In order to appease my fiance it would have to be refinished and restored. I got is disassembled, but I’m anxious to to really get started. I’d like to know what kind of chair it is and what type of wood its made out of. I hope these images will be helpful.

Thanks!!

It’s a Morris chair so chances are it’s white oak. If it’s real.

Earlextech: In regards to whether or not its real, are you referring to the wood or the chair? What would I be looking for to determine the authenticity?

I will attempt to get a better picture of the wood this afternoon. Perhaps a better picture will aid in identification.

Thanks!

The chair. If its an original there should be a paper label that tells you, so I’m guessing that doesn’t exist. Which leads me to believe its a copy.

The coloring in the first pic makes me think it’s Red Birch.
