I have this desk chair that I have been keeping in our garage. Not in a quiet, out-of-the way place, but right there on the beaten path. It's been there for three years. Shame on me. I didn't have a place for it anymore, so I took it apart and put it in the garage. I had refinished it about ten years ago. I had used it for several years and then I found that I didn't need it anymore and that's how it ended up in the garage.
It was a miracle that it didn't get scratched up (or worse) while it was sentenced to the garage ( I moved some things so I could take this picture). Poor chair.
I did some major cleaning and arranging in our study last week and decided that perhaps the chair could find a new home there. I had tried it in the study once before, but it is very heavy and our daughter, at that time, wasn't able to scoot it up to the computer desk. She's bigger now, and I thought that the chair might work for us now. So, I cleaned, fluffed and crossed my fingers to wait until everything was perfect before checking to see if the chair would work in the study. The room needed everything that I did to it --chair or not. But, having the chair reassembled and moved into the study was going to be my reward for all my hard work.
The seat has some writing that is stenciled in paint underneath it.
I don't have a clue what it could mean.
My mom says the chair is about 75 years old.
It used to be in a newspaper office years ago,
so it once had a pretty interesting life.
I'll bet it heard plenty of gossip!
Those four ends each have a hole in it and a screw goes through
the hole and attaches to the seat part.
All the metal is iron, I believe. It is very heavy.
Do you see the coil/spring?
It allows the chair to tip backwards a little bit while you're sitting in it.
You have to turn the chair upside down to attach the base part
with the wheels to the seat.
And here it is in it's new place of honor. I think it looks great at the computer desk!
