NOT by Luther Conover, a green fiberglass wingback chair (Status: Max the cat approved)

 Last week I took a swing through the Greater Columbus Antique Mall; as I was leaving this chair was coming in.  I didn't have the cash on me at the time but I made a point of stopping by yesterday to see if the chair was still available.
