It looks like an S. Bent & Brothers chair. They were in business from 1867-2000 in Gardner Massachusetts, which some online sources say was "the chair capitol of the world." Most of their furniture was colonial revival in style, and made of either maple or ash (in an attempt to emulate oak). I would think this kind of chair dates to around 1900-10. It looks like a tavern-style dining chair. I've seen a lot of old photographs of early hotels with similar chairs.

LB,

Thanks for the info !!!!!

we also call them fire house chairs as lots of fire houses had chairs like this for the guys to lounge in waiting for a fire,

bent used paper lables earlier i am thinking this is the later half of the 20th century, we were still buying this style chair new in the 1980-90s
