This chair from the Luce Furniture Company is rectangular in shape, and the cane seat tapers from wide in the front to narrower in back. The tapered back has a marquetry inlay on the center back panel, which appears to be a stylized tree motif. The legs are also tapered, and the front legs end in a pedestal style foot. Double stretchers connect the sides and single ones are at the front and back.
