Vintage stainless steel barber chair

BEFORE $10

Picked up this sweet little beauty (chair;) at a yard sale for $10.  It’s hydraulic and heavy, but was in good condition.  My family goes back 5 generations in the Spanish Colonial Arts.  My brother is a tinsmith and I’ve trained as a retablo artist (icons of the saints painted on wood boards).  I love the art and I also love juxtaposing the iconography with modern themes.  The image from this chair is the one that appears in our banner.

The chair is currently  at a furniture consignment house frequented by Hollywood studio types retailing for $400 🙂  So maybe you’ll see it again In Plain Site 😉
