Product Description

A rather charming barber’s chair…

Dating back to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1950s, this elegant chair is quite the statement piece. Very heavy in its nature, the chair is made in steel with a cast iron base. The padded seat ensures it is comfortable, and it’s finished in a ‘British racing Green’, faux leather. The chair is complemented by the chrome mechanism and fittings, which allows the chair to recline, with a simple press of the lever on the reverse. The chair also has a 360 degree swivel rotation, as expected

Structurally the chair is strong and heavy duty, therefore it can be used for its original purpose, or it could easily form part of a display in a retail environment (as an example). In general the chair is in good condition, yet there are weathered areas to the chrome and there are some notable tears to the faux (particularly on the seat and the sides). Personally, we feel this wear and tear gives the chair character, and off course it is not detrimental to the overall function of the chair…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. As described, the chair is great structurally, yet there is surface wear and tear, some rusting, some paint chipping and some tears to the faux leather. That said, we feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity… Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
