1950s LYON METAL FOLDING CHAIR
(Scroll down to read item description/condition below story)
The Petermans and the Pendertons had more going for them than good alliteration. The two couples loved to play cards together. In fact, for years, the couples reserved Tuesday night just for that pursuit. They would play Bridge, Pinochle, Rook, Hearts...the list went on--they loved them all. One week they would be at the Peterman’s and then the next week it was at the Penderton’s home. They would gather around a small card table, sit on folding chairs and play cards into the wee hours of the night--Peterman/Pendorton perfection. That is until one day in the fall of 1953 when Wallace Peterman realized that Lucy Penderton’s nervous habit of tugging on her earlobe had more sinister designs. When he suggested to Henry that his wife’s earlobe tug was nothing more than a sign to him to direct how he played his hand, Lucy responded by suggesting that Delores Peterman always managed to lean over and eye Henry’s hand whenever she went to get more coffee.
The night ended with both Wallace and Henry holding steak to their black eyes at their respective homes. The next day the familiar old folding card table and folding chairs were jostling about in the back of the St Vincent de Paul truck, heading to the second-hand store never to be shared by a Peterman or a Penderton again.
For sale is one (1) circa 1950s all steel folding chair nicely distressed for a great shabby look. We have several of these available in either blue or brown. They came from a church who upgraded to newer models but they are very well made, stylish, comfortable and sturdy with lots of years left in them. These were made in the USA by the Lyon's company and measure 30" to the top of the backrest, 16.5" wide, 17" from floor to top of set and have 15.25" wide X 14.5" deep seats. They fold down to 36" X 15.5" X 2". The seat and backrest are both contoured for better comfort and the seat features stylish recessed design lines on it. We love the look of this chairs and think they would make great side chairs or outdoor chairs. Again, this listing is for one (1) chair but you'll automatically get discounted shipping when you order two or more. We currently have 4 brown chairs left.
As mentioned above, these chairs all have a wonderful patina of light distressing. All chairs available have worn paint, scratches, scuffs and you may find a few specs of rust but over all they are clean, sturdy and free of large dents or other major issues.

International delivery times vary from country to country. An item may take anywhere from 7 to 30 days and occasionally longer and depends upon customs or local delivery delays. We have shipped many items all over the globe with very few problems, but items can get lost or stolen along the way.
