Starting off my new monthly series, the collector, with a chair that I knew of nothing until 2 years ago when I bought a pair. With no information coming from the seller, I went to cyberspace to find out what I could. I discovered my chairs were a perfect specimens of French Bridge Chairs, albeit not in great condition. Someone's cat had gotten to them and I can't bring myself to replace the leather because it has so much history and character. In fact I wrote about it here, in one of my first ever posts. But in case you ever run across a pair of these lovelies you will know what your dealing with.
