    I'm hoping that someone can tell me what we have here. It's a Kochs barber chair- but that's the extent of our knowledge. My father (the son of a barber) bought it from a former barber and it's sat in our basement for the past 15-20 years. It's in reasonably good shape but we don't know the first thing about these chairs. Thanks for any advice you can offer!

      1950's chair. There are a bunch of sites online dealing with these. You should have no problem at all researching it. Nice basic chair.

      Looks to be about 1947 type of barber Chair......maybe even older??

      I LOVE IT!!! I used to cut hair ( Barber stylist ) for about 10 years. One of the places I worked at was your basic one-room old type of barber-shop. Just a room with about 12 chairs for the people, and 2 old type of barber chairs with our stations. Everyone talked, and laughed and visited with each other......Great fun times. Plus the old barber chairs were like this there....

      Here is some Barbering Supplies History etc:
