    Bruce, I bought mine for $10 at a thrift store but it would take a lot for me to part with it. I don’t have a feeling that there is hidden collector value here, though it is well worth the value of other fine chairs.

  2. Bruce Procopus Says:

    I have the same chair. Can you advise what it is worth?

  3. Jackson Payne Says:

    Ellen,
    I am not an expert on Sikes Chairs. I found this one at a thrift store and I love it. I would like to see pictures of your chair if you have them.

    Can you tell me when and how many of the cathedral back windsor chairs ( 1341-1/2) were made w/ the rectangular, blue and tan, Sikes Chair Company, Buffalo, NY label? How would you value it today if in very good condition?

    Thank you very much,
