Koken Congress Model 500 Octagon Barber Shop Chair Rare Original Patina
A very rare original barber chair by Koken Barbers Supply Co early 1900's Congress model 500 Octagon. This hard-to-find early barbershop chair is in very good original shape with the exception of three breaks/cracks in calf rest which has no missing pieces & could be weld repaired. Hydraulics & recline are functional but could use a tune-up. The upholstery is not original & could be displayed as is butt would need to be addressed before everyday use. The original headrest is the only missing link but we should have a period correct replacement for sale separately if required.
