Chair fit for a king

Q: I bought a wooden chair from a very elderly lady who told me it had been in her family for a long time. The seat measures 13 by 15 inches and the overall height is 36 inches.

I use it with a small lady's desk. Before I have it restored, I was hoping you could tell if it has any value.

A: You have an Edwardian side chair. The Edwardian period of design lasted from 1901 to 1910 and was named for King Edward VII of England.

The design lines were a direct contrast to the heavy, ornate, dark furniture of the Victorian era. Earlier styles and designs were incorporated into Edwardian furniture but cabinetmakers used a lighter touch.

Your side chair would probably be worth $150 to $200.

Q: I have enclosed the mark that is on the bottom of a pottery red orange rooster figure. It was a wedding gift in 1955. I always kept it in a china cupboard, and it is still in perfect condition. The rooster has a green comb and legs and stands about 20 inches tall.

I haven't decided what I want to do with it — keep it or put it in a tag sale. Knowing if it has any value will help me make up my mind.
