A really cool pair of barber shop chairs in Burgundy with swivel rotation, circa 1970s…

SKU: RC0148.

Product Description

A superb pair of unusual barber shop chairs…

Although we are unsure of the actual age of these pieces, we believe they could date to the latter part of the 20th century. The previous owner suggested they date to the 1960s, yet we feel they may be a little later. Either way, they are pretty cool! Finished in a faux leather and in a Burgundy colour, the chairs have a surface patina that adds authenticity and charm…

The chairs are made with a steel frame and base which enables a 360 degree swivel rotation. The chairs themselves which are funky with their square shape, are padded with a moulded thick foam enabling comfort and a unique finish. The chairs are of a used nature and unfortunately one of the chairs has lost its ‘pump’ pedal at the bottom. One chair perfectly lifts up when one pumps the pedal with their foot. The other would need to be a feature chair or of course will need a new pedal. We think they are brilliant as they are and do not necessarily need to end up back as functional barber shop chairs…

We are offering these pieces in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the chairs are in good shape, sturdy and strong. The faux leather shows some tatty areas, some surface cracks and some losses to the material. That said, we don’t believe the current condition is detrimental to the look and feel, if anything it’s what adds to the charm of them. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
