Vintage Child’s Barber Chair with Horse Head

Retro Staff Comments

Vintage Kids Barber ChairThe restoration of this old-school child’s barber chair consisted of cleaning the entire piece, reupholstering the seat, and repainting the horse’s head. We’re not sure who the manufacturer was, or exactly when this chair was made, but it probably dates to the 1950s.

The idea of adding a carousel-style horse head to the barber chair would have been to get the child sit still while the barber cut their hair. The child could place a leg on either side of the horse and hold onto the reins.

There is a heavy base to the chair and the seat has a handle to control the hydraulic lift for seat adjustment. Dimensions: 43”H x 33”D x 19”W.

This item is not for sale. We show restored items in our museum for viewing, information and to further the hobby of collecting and restoration. We also just want to share the photos of the many items we have restored over the years.
