F F Koenigkramer Barber Chairs

Known mainly for manufacturing superior quality barber chairs, the F&F Koenigkramer Company in Cincinnati, Ohio was founded by two sons of a german inmigrant in the States.

After many years developing and selling barber chairs, they moved into the business of hydraulic equipment, chairs, and stools used in the optical and dental industries. They got to be pretty well known among dentists for its superior quality and design. In 1968 the F. & F. Koenigkramer Company of Cincinnati, Ohio was bought by Dentists' Supply (guess what their business was ;-), which later on would become Dentsply International Inc. In 1982 Dentsply sold its Koenigkramer equipment manufacturer. Nowadays, a company called Reliance Medical Products, Inc is what there's left of the formerly F&F Koenigkramer, Inc. Tha name "Koenigkramer" got definitely lost in 1987, when it was incorporated to Reliance Medical Products Inc. They nowadays operate as a subsidiary of Haag-Streit Holding U.S., Inc. Even when it's long ago since they manufactured one, you can still find today Koenigkramer Barber Chairs on some auctions, local antique stores or webs like ebay or craigslist...

  2. I have an F F Koenigkramer barber chair with headrest and functioning hydraulics. I cannot find the serial number but I do know that the chair was purchased at least 55 years ago by my grandfather. It is in decent condition except for a rip in the head rest. Could you give a “ball park” estimate of the value of this chair.
    Thank You,
