Restored this one recently as part of a book on the various methods. It had inserted tenons on the front rail, broken on both sides. Old chairs seem to always like that, its not until one looks closely and finds all the nails etc. stuck in them. Made some new ones, fraction thicker and glued it all up with 3M aero epoxy. Seems to have an art deco theme to it with the fluted sides. Back is bookmatched which is a nice touch, only on the one side. Gave it a new seat cover and some extra wadding.
