I just love old TV chairs. When ever I go to my favourite 2nd hand store, I always look at the chairs first. When I saw this one I couldn't resist. My Latest 'find' is, I think, probably late 1960's or early 1970's. When you lean into the back it reclines. The varnish is original, with only a few marks, and it is possible it has been re-covered - although could be original too. I can't see any manufacturers marks, but looks to me like maybe a Don Rex. Don Rex was a furniture manufacturer in Brisbane who made higher end furniture, often copying from Danish design. When you can pick up something like this for $10, why buy new? Eventually I may have re-covered, but currently enjoying the shabby chic look, and the no stress that the kids might spill something on it.
