  2. Hi! I have had a Koch barber chair for years that I bought in a secondhand store in Vancouver, Canada, it is light green enamel, nickel plated metal and black leather seat. I would like to know the age of it, I think it is pretty old, on the bottom of the leather seat is a number plate that says when referring to this chair quote this number. The factory number is 255826. Would that be helpful in determining the age of the chair……………/thanks…jack

  3. HI!!! I bought a TAKARA barber chair that works up/down/turns/tilts and is is great shape, but is missing the two chrome attachments for the upper footrest that attaches to the bottom rest. My chair needs rechroming also. Anyone know where I might obtain these chrome attachments? Also where is the best/cheaper place to rechrome. I live in Ontario Canada at the start of Lake Superior….
