I have two chairs to show, one I picked up this past weekend and the other a couple of weeks ago. Both chairs need work, one will be a fairly easy fix, the other not.
I like the design of this iron chair, can't remember exactly what I paid for it, but it was between $10-15. I need to clean the iron and would like to put some sort of polish on it. If you know a good kind, please share. Recovering the chair seat should be an easy job. Anyone know the maker of this chair?
I found this funky chair on Sunday at an estate sale in a very desirable part of town. It's a neighborhood with houses on the lake. Shacks go for $300,000 or more. Small houses that need to be updated go for $500,000 and up. This chair needs some work - back legs need to be reglued, it needs refinishing and definitely needs reupholstery. I couldn't find a brand/maker on this chair. The back of it has that Eames style. Anyone know? The chair was marked $40 - I haggled and got it for $25.
*****I received comments from Vintage Scapes and Beccalina of Vintage South that were both very helpful. I found two listings on eBay. On one listing it was called a Hans Wegner Shell Chair. On the other listing it was called Kodawood Finn Juhl chair. I need to do more research to find the maker. The value of my chair would be somewhere around the price of the Kodawood chair, they are in similar condition. But refinishing would greatly increase the value of the chair and in this case, would be a good idea.
I've heard of a product called Wol? or Wool? that is used in the refinishing trade for wood. It's supposed to be for wood that is not in bad condition and saves you the time of refinishing a piece. I have looked for it without success. Anyone familiar with this product?
What did you find this past week?
