Obviously the cane back is different, but that was sometimes done as an option in many lines of furniture back then. It appears that the front leg co...

This looks like one of the standard 50s patterns from one of the vermont slate companies to me. Send you photo here and they should be able to match the pattern.

While slab on grade construction is a proven technology there can be issues with any slab on grade home in any location. Not to be an alarmest, but you should look at these homes with you eyes open. In KC look for signs of lifting or sagging in the slab. This can be due to expansive clay soils in ou...
