    After looking at the pictures Victorian just doesn't seem to fit. The back reminds me of 1930's country style oak style but the legs are really unusual. I wouldn't guess it is from England though, not quite gaudy enough. (no offense meant to our UK friends)

    Is this yours or are you rebuilding for someone. Doesn't look very comfortable.
