Antique Theo A Kochs Barber Shop Chair For Restoration Or Parts Good Hydraulics
Vintage Theo A Kochs Chicago hydraulic barbershop chair. Hydraulics work as they should up & down, spins free, no swivel brake or it is froze open, recline tensioner is complete as pictured. Pump handle is rusted/froze closed so the recline function can not be tested. We could get this working smooth before pickup for an additional $100 or take as is and repair yourself. There are no breaks or repairs with the exception of the porcelain over cast iron base with has a hairline crack through one side which is still usable. All plated cast iron parts are solid with no breaks or repairs so you could use this chair for parts or restore. Upper & lower nickel has advanced surface rust, flaking with normal pitting but could be lacquered & used as is or refinished. The porcelain is in good shape for its age with the less common green original porcelain. Upholstery has probably been replaced long ago with the black pattern vinyl which has some tears & exposed padding. Upholstery could be used as is or replaced to match your needs if being put back into service or restored. Note metal stripping with new nickel over copper plate runs $1500-2000 here in the Midwest so this would be a great candidate for upholstery only keeping that original patina look alive imo. No head rest included but we should have a period correct one available separately if needed. Offered as is as found. No returns. Please ask questions. Thanks for looking.
