Rare Antique Koken Barber Shop Chair Porcelain Side Early 1900s
For your consideration is a very rare original porcelain side Koken Barbers Supply Co chair estimated to date from 1909 to 1919. Someone has done a partial restoration including a red vinyl upholstery which is usable but could be replaced by the purchaser tp match their requirements. The chair pumps up & locks from swivel so it has a good brake pad to prevent spin while shaving. It does not recline freely & will require some work on the recline tensioner to operate properly. It has been painted white on the porcelain parts. The calf rest, right long arm & footrest have some stress fractures see pics. The original headrest is the only missing link but we should have a period correct replacement for sale separately if required.
The as-is price of $1800.00 includes an estimated freight allowance of $500 which covers private courier delivery to most locations within the Continental US. This freight service is a white-glove private courier which will take on average two to four weeks for delivery. Quicker service via truck-line is available at additional cost to the buyer. Local pickup in Kansas 66007 is also available at a reduced price.
