are among the oldest items of history in my trade.
The history of the Koken Presidential Congressional barber chair with the wooden round leather seat and the round back is one of the rarest Barber chairs still in operation. It is from 1890 from the Crystal Barber shop in Washington state. I am the third owner of this masterpiece. It is truly a wonderful experience to have this relic in my shop and to have patrons seated in it for their hair cuts. It was also one of the first hydraulic chairs in operation. It is now 130 years old.
The burgundy Presidential Barber chair is porcelain and was the biggest Barber chair ever made weighing in at 300 lbs, it is from the 1930's. The history of this beautiful chair is from the first Waldorf Astoria in the big Apple (New York). It is a pleasure to give a gentleman a shave in this piece of art from the art decoy era. Lucky Luciano had a shave in this Barber chair as he lived in the Astoria in the 30's also.
