Vintage Berninghaus Hercules Barber Shop Chair For Parts Or Your Restoration
Vintage Eugene Berninghaus Barbershop Supply Company out of Cincinnati, Ohio USA Hercules style barber shop chair for your restoration or parts. This would be a great addition to your museum, antique barbershop collection, working vintage barbershop, garage or recreation room. Brackets are nickel over cast iron & solid but have been partially painted as pictured. Hydraulics pump up & down flawlessly, recline works & locks in recline plus swivel brake locks solid. Please note it is missing the swivel ankle-rest, the two connecting ankle-rest brackets & the original headrest otherwise all there with no visible breaks or repairs. I may have a period correct headrest available for purchase separately. The porcelain is in good condition for its age. Upholstery appears to possibly be original with tears & exposed padding but could be used as is for display or replaced & reinforced if restoring to be put back into service. This chair would be a great candidate for upholstery only in my opinion keeping that vintage worn patina look alive.
