Here we have for sale a very Rare Wooden Koken Barbers Chair. Original Tag on the Back towards the bottom.
The Hydraulics work well, but we will leave that for later restoration. The tilt release is there & the nickel is good but does need cleaning, as does the whole chair. The upholstery is all original, very much needs re done. This is all part of the reason the price is way below the appraised price so it has room for the restoration cost.
It does need a Koken headrest. Upholstering can be updated after the nickel & cleaning.This Chair dates from the 1890's when they still offered the all wooden bases. Feel free to ask any questions. We answer our customers 7 days a week. Missing the Head Rest, but all other parts, especially the Legs & the end caps, are there. This is a very Rare & Exquisite Chair.
It needs restoring back to its original beauty. Finding the Chair is the first step in acquiring such a Rare Bird. There is not a big hurry in picking up the chair. We will be bringing it inside for the winter & storing it. If we don't sell it will be restored at our own Senior Pace!
The great thing is the legs are in Mint condition with all the end caps. This is very hand to find with a Wooden Base.
The Chair measures about 40 inches tall,, without the head rest. It is 24 across at the arms. The Hydraulics seems to be working well, but this is part of the "As Is" price. As We are not restoration specialists. We have only estimated the weight at 200 pounds.
We can get a more accurate weight if you need it. The item "Antique Koken Congress Tiger Oak Claw Foot Barber ChairAll Original Unrestored" is in sale since Saturday, October 16, 2021.
