Chair not an antique nothing very special in design either. Can find them at tag sales and flea markets regularly for $20 or less. Dealer offered you a good price

my apologies for not being an expert on what is an antique in what is not. curiosity about a 33 year old high chair led me here. it was mine as a baby and I was just curious as to what its worth actually. I guess to me priceless. however thank you for your response

Hi Ruby

Rather keep it if you can.I am sure it
carries a lot of sentimental value which
is indeed priceless.

A vaulable antique high chair would come in three classes - 1) those made for the elite society (Sheraton, Hepplewhite, etc.), 2) it belonged to a historical figure and you had the provenance and 3) hand made, hewn and joined with dowels or wooden pins. That being said, they are great items - find a nice square planter box, water tight and put a nice plant in your chair or even better, a stuffed panda. Have fun
