Good Questions: What the heck is this vintage find?

Hi AT:SF, Can anyone tell me something about this chair? I found this little treasure of a seat at Urban Ore and took it home for $30. I am now wondering what the heck it is. The seat flips open to reveal a storage compartment inside. Thanks! Tarina

Hi Tarina, We believe your find is a vintage sewing chair, a little like this one. The compartment is a storage space for sewing and craft projects. Sewing chairs are a rarity these days, but one of their principle manufacturers, Stump Home Specialties of South Bend, IN, apparently still makes them. Is yours a Stump chair? They might be able to tell you more. Anyone else?
