Among the things I inherited from my Aunt Minnie was this very stylish chair. It's been painted over a myriad of times, and is currently a very light green.For a wooden chair, isn't it amazing how very detailed it is...and the design is lovely. I have no idea who made this chair, but my earliest memory of it was as the 'telephone' chair. It sat in a corner of the back hall at Aunt Minnie's house, below a wall hung 'crank' telephone. It boasted a rather flat red and white gingham seat cushion tied on to the side supports. Sitting down on this chair was as far as you could go while having a telephone conversation, as far as the receiver/handle would reach. It boggles the mind to think how far phones have come in the last 55 years...now you can talk virtually anywhere.
