This plank seat side chair has been entirely obsessively decoupaged with American postage stamps. Not being a philatelist, I can only guess that the stamps date to the late 19th century, although the chair itse3lf is earlier. The stamps are mostly 1 cent denominations with several others that go up to 10 cents. Light and dark stamps are arranged to create a checkerboard pattern. The back of the chair measures 32 1/2" tall ; the seat is at 16". Pennsylvania origin.
