Center Pole Chair for Sale - Omaha

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I feel like those sellers on American Pickers who drag their feet selling their favorite items, but I guess it is time. I purchased the chair about 8 years ago. I made an oak seat similar to a refurbished one I saw in Aspen, and painted the metal as original as I could match.  It has been sitting in my garage all this time since I have no where to hang it. $300 - you pick up.

I also have a Borvig Quad chair (no slats on the seats) if anyone is interested.

 

thanks!

I still have this center pole chair to sell -- I built the oak seat for it.

It's a good time for me to try and sell some stuff. My parents moved out of my boyhood home so I am cleaning. See all my late 60s/early 70s toys below (not pictured are my redline hotwheels, corgi cars, matchbox cars and GI Joes which I moved into my own basement a couple years ago).

What's the provenance (where did it come from)?

I bought the chair on ebay from a guy in Colorado. His girl friend lived in Des Moines so he actually dropped it off at my house.

 

He said he bought a bunch of old chairs from Breckenridge, although this one looks like some I saw being sold in Aspen.

 

The Borvig quad chair (not pictured) I have came from Mt. Trashmore (ski area built on a landfill), then made its way to Mt. Crescent, Iowa.

 

Not sure what it would cost to ship -- I have been watching that show on tv where people bid to transport items -- kind of like ebay.

looks like the old Baker chairs but the seat is way too good, also missing is the chipped paint, rust, grease marks and other assorted stains Looking for one to hang in the loft at my buddies cabin there (no doubt his wife will be thrilled) but I'll pass on this one.

Here is a pic of the other end -- I suppose I could sell for $275 if buyer arranges shipping or pickup.  For $400 total I would throw in the Borvig Quad chair which needs a seat and new paint.  Double chair is from Breck -- the quad is from the Midwest.

 

 

 

Section of Borvig Quad below -- the thing is a beast and weighs a ton. You can see just the very top of it in the first photo.

 

Sorry for the bad pic, the thing is just huge and I didn't want to pull everything out of the garage unless someone is actually interested.  thanks,
