Vintage Theo A Kochs Barber Shop Chair Wood & Porcelain For Restoration Or Parts
Early 1900's Theo A Kochs Barber Supply Company Chicago, Illinois USA barber shop chair for your restoration or parts. This would be a great addition to your antique barbershop collection, working vintage barbershop, garage or recreation room. Brackets are nickel over cast iron heavily rusted but have a good vintage look. Hydraulics pump up & down flawlessly, recline works & locks. Please note it is missing the original headrest & the right ankle rest bracket has an old braze repair weld otherwise no visible breaks or repairs. I have a period correct headrest available for purchase separately. The porcelain is in good condition for its age. Upholstery appears to be original with vintage tacks & in fair condition for its age, it could be replaced or updated to match your needs if being put into service. The seat bottom cushion & backrest cushion both have original spring & decent cushioning but will need to be reinforced if putting in to service. I can have it professionally reinforced then covered with full grain aniline died cow hide leather color of your choice & period tacks for an additional $800-900, $400-500 for vinyl; this would add around 3-5 weeks to delivery or pickup. Metal disassembly, cleaning, copper over nickel plating & reassembly available for additional $2500, or disassembly sandblasting only for $800-1000. I try to leave porcelain original when possible. Matching period headrest available for $325. Keep in mind if you are considering new plating yourself this is a very pricy time consuming part of a full restoration that is often overlooked, 16+ hours for professional disassembly & reassembly plus plating fees typically at least $1500 up to $2000 for a professional showroom result. The hidden cast iron parts that were not plated from the factory have some normal surface rust. The nickel plated parts have varying degrees of surface rust & pitting. The oak seat frame is missing some of the filagree trim & has been painted over at some point. Overall fair condition with many miles left on it. Available for viewing or local pickup in zip code 66007. Local pickup is free.
