We are of the OPINION that this chair was painted at one time. There is evidence of paint all over it.

The back splat support has the initials of "E.H."carved into it for Eliza Hall.

On the underside of the seat appears to be the name "Lida 67". (or Liza).

Lida Calvert Hall was born in 1856....meaning she would have been 11 years old when she signed this chair.

She would have grown up with this chair in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

It was most likely made in or around New England.
