how i found it...


I found this chair in an old building we aquired from a friend. The label on the bottom is from 'The Duchess Line" from Queen City Dinettes Inc. The only info I have been able to find is that the company was in Cincinnati Ohio. I would like to have more info and know the year if anyone knows this company or can help me. I sanded down the rust and painted it an antique brass.
