Even nowadays, the Takara Belmont company has a very strong market share, selling Salon & Beauty chairs; also some dental equipment. The company was founded in Japan in 1921 by Mr. Hidenobu Yoshikawa.
They started selling Barber Chairs in Japan, but quickly started selling in the States, where there was a strong need for them.
You can find out what they do nowadays at their official page: http://www.takarabelmont.com/
If you are looking for a Belmont Barber Chair, these are the places to look:
- Local Antique Stores
- Google (quite a big shop!)
You can find some Belmont barber chairs regarded as vintage or aged, that are sold for a very good price (for the seller, of course! ;-), but sometimes you can get a nice bargain, just keep looking!
