This vintage, faux animal bar stool, came from my parent's house in Brooklyn. It was from a set of 6 or 8 that were at the basement bar in our house, all through the 50's and 60's. This is the only surviving one. It's got a faux animal print for the seat, a backrest, and the base is cast iron. Very solid. Of course, the faux animal doesn't actually resemble any REAL animals. More like a combination of Zebra and Tiger and, oh, forget it! It's just random 50's kitsch that vaguely resembles an animal print. LOL. See pics.
The bar stool is 43 inches high, and the seat is at 33 ½ inches, which puts you at the proper level to sit comfortably at a bar of the proper height. The base is 16 inches squared. It's been stored just as you see it, covered in plastic, for quite a while. I did not open it and examine it, but through the plastic, it still looks like it's in the same perfect condition it was in when I put it away, about 10 years ago, and why wouldn't it be?
It's cool, it's vintage, and if I still had a bar in my house, I would definitely keep this, but I don't, so it's yours to grab, and then grab a beer on!
