I have a wooden chair that I would like to find more

Customer Question

I have a wooden chair that I would like to find more information about it.
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Does the chair have a maker's mark or serial number?

This looks like an Arts and Crafts style chair, but later into the 20th century and, in the absence of a signature and maker of good decorative / utilitarian value. It feels a bit like some of the Arts and Crafts Glasgow school items of furniture. I would estimate this at 150-200 usd.

I hope this helps

Best wishes

It has a stamp on the underside of the base B3 and another letter I cannot make out, is it worth anything?

Think this is an individual maker or inventory number / pattern number so doesn't really signify an important maker so the value should be as stated

Thanks
