Dear Claudia,
Greetings and thank you for your submission. While I am researching this piece for you, can you tell me a little about how it came to be in your possession? I am trying to substantiate the provenance as it will effect the value, perhaps a little more history on how you came to it will assist.
Sincerely,

Erin-Marie

Hi, my mother collected beautiful antiques during her life. I remember her buying it around 1970 to 72. I do not know anything else. But she always said that it was unique......alot of antique dealers would call her when they had something out of the ordinary, She was a buyer and had an eye for it.

Dear Claudia - Without being able to substantiate the provenance of this piece I compare it to auction results for 19th century carved oak chairs which include a coat of arms. With this comparison, I would estimate the value of your example between $3500USD - $4000USD. If you have any follow-up questions, you will find me available.

Most Sincerely,

Erin-Marie

Would you have any buyers for it?

She really did have one heck of an eye because the quality of the carving is "top notch"! Were I you, I would begin by locating someone who can decipher the coat of arms, which is flanked by lions and surmounted by a coronet or crown denoting the rank of the owner. With that known the rest should begin to fall into place which could easily raise the estimate.

I currently do not have a buyer in mind for this, I would also caution you against selling it until the owner of the coat of arms has been established as it may be worth much more than the quality of carving.
