Child’s chair, ca 1950s?

Must ask my aunt if she remembers when the pair of these appeared at her parents' house (my grandparents) and if she knows who made them… I'm reasonably certain I sat in them as a child, so yeah, they're *really* old! This one is at my brother's house. The other went to one of my aunt's two children.

EDIT: My aunt says her maternal grandfather made them (my great-grandfather) from plywood left over after building rowboats. My aunt's daughter is a year older than I am and I was the second great-grandchild in that branch of the family, so I suspect they are about as old as I am.

Looks as sturdy as ever! My dad made footstools that look just like the bottom of this.
