Hi,
There was another chair made by Salvatore Leone that was a bentwood caned rocker but it only had a single curl between the rocker and the seat. Is there any best guess as to the age of this. Also is there any on-line resource that cites material about that manufacturer.

cheers,

hi

a previous post by AA to "confused bentwood" gives a bit
of history behind salvatore leone.
the images of the labelling were also posted.
in this reply the chair was dated to the early 1960`s.
material used was probably both stained ash and beechwood.
the post goes back 1 year and 4 months ago.i would direct you to the exact post if i knew how. perhaps you can ask jade or AA.

i have one myself which i painstakingly restored.i also sought help on this forum to which i received invaluable
information.
the restoration was well worth the effort invoved.
