The Rest of the Booty From Yesterday's Estate Sale. It Looks Like a Pearsall Chair, But I'm Not Convinced. Status: Avaiable.
With the help of Illuminate I was able to snatch up this chair at the Midas Touch estate sale yesterday.
She actually snatched the tag off for me while I ran over and "called" the table of
Franciscan Starburst. I feel like a dope though, cuz there apparently was an
orange ashtray right next to the table that she wanted and I completely missed it.
I've got an orange ashtray or two, so I'll make it up to her.
I've found another chair VERY similar to this one on Worthpoint, unfortunately I'm
too cheap to subscribe and get the 411 on selling price. Anybody have an
account? There isn't much info. on the chair itself either. Just a picture that I found
via a Google Image Search.
I had searched Google Images for "Pearsall Chair" and only found one other
similar chair but it's obviously not the same. It's a bit more refined I think, in the
The upholstery is a durable synthetic. It's probably why this piece has survived so
long. The legs are a little loose but nothing a little glue couldn't fix right up.
Otherwise it's actually quite a comfortable chair! Surprisingly so!
