This little chair is 33.5 high at the back, has a 16" diameter seat, and the seat is 16" high. I have owned it for about 70 years, but I don't know the full age. It is a dark wood, but I don't know which kind. It is in very good condition; the lower rung was damaged early on, but the chair is sound.
I can only guess that it came from a used furniture shop. My mother bought it for me when I was a child. It has been in my possession about 70 years.
