A $40K antique antique chair from the 1950s is for sale near me.
I don’t know the owner or what’s inside, but the chair looks like it’s been sitting there for a while.
It’s a classic, the kind of chair you might find in a home office, but I can’t imagine spending $40 to own one of these chairs.
I don’t want to sell it, but this chair has a lot going for it.
It’s cheap and the chair isn’t as ugly as I might expect, with a nice, vintage-inspired design.
The chair has been sitting on the floor since 1950 and it’s still functional and comfortable.
It has a built-in electric motor and has been maintained to this day.
A recent article in the Times of London described it as a “fantastic chair” and described it this way: “A modern antique, its distinctive look and comfortable feel make it ideal for anyone who likes to have their work done, and can also be a great choice for those who prefer to have it repaired.”
The chair is being sold by a local furniture dealer, which is an awesome feature of the online auction.
The seller was contacted and I contacted him, which was great.
He was kind enough to email me pictures of the chair and offer to send me an in-person tour.
We had an amazing conversation and he said he had it from a collection that had been around for 40 years.
He said he was going to make a little change to the chair for me, and that he’d be happy to send it to me if I needed it.
So I bought it.
The pictures of this chair show it was a little bit crooked and the paint was a bit dirty.
The real deal is the quality.
The paint is very clean, the wood is strong and the legs are long enough to be comfortable.
I’m a bit of a collector myself and I appreciate the value of an antique.
The seller said the chair was worth $40 for the workmanship alone, so that’s a bargain for $20.
What are some other things you would like to know about this chair?
You may have noticed the pictures I’ve put on this blog show it has a bit more work than the pictures on eBay.
That’s because I did the work myself.
I took it apart and painted it to make it look like it was brand new.
I then took the chair apart to make sure it was still functional.
I also took the original cabinet out to do some cleaning.
I used some of the original drawer boards and other furniture that was lying around the house to get a better look at the chair.
I did a bit with the wood to make the chair look like a piece of art.
