Musical Chair and One for the Cards

I found both of these chairs in recent weeks and at different times and different places. Both are in great shape and sound of seat. This one will go as is and the other is getting a makeover!

First up is this piano chair...yep that's what it is, I understand harpists also use these.  They were first made in the late 1800's~~~It's a Victorian thing~~~  This edition was probably made in the 1950's. 

   When I first saw it at the thrift store I thought "someone has hand crafted a piano chair with a back, too funny". Well I shopped some more, took another look at the chair, shopped some more, then bought it and checked out. I'm a sucker for a chair, the odder the better!

 Love the cast iron and glass ball claw feet.

And the beautifully detailed legs.

And Monday when I was out junking, I found this sweet little fold-up chair.
I just love these~~~but~~~I never ever keep them~~~I always sell them, 
go figure!

The wicker back is in excellent shape, in fact the whole chair is very good except for that little blip at the top left.  It was easy peasy to fix. Been seeing a lot of wicker backed chairs being painted lately...

 Love the manufactures name on this one, and it came to me by way of 
New Jersey!!!
This little cutie is way due for a serious makeover. Not going to divulge anymore, it's a surprise~~~I'll show you when I get it done.

Thanks for Popping in~~~
Happy Hunting and Gathering!!!


  1. I have never seen one of those piano chairs before!!! That is pretty neat. Love the feet on it. I have had to force myself to stop buying chairs. I can only sit in so many at once :)

  2. I'm a sucker for a cute chair. I've never seen a piano chair before. Great feet!

  3. I love the ball and claw feet on the piano chair, but I too have never seen a piano chair like that one. As for the folding chair, I don't know what it is about those darn things, but I can never pass those up either. I love making over the folding chairs and so far I have sold every one I have ever revamped. Can't wait to see what you come up with for this beauty.

  4. Wow, I love them both. I've never seen a chair like that with a back on it, very interesting.

  5. Oh I love the old music chair, piano or harpist chair
    and the fold up chair is pretty cool also all it need is a new covered seat and maybe a little paint?
    The music chair would make a great plant stand or night stand

  6. if i had a bigger house, i'd collect tons of chairs:) you found such a great pair! i've never seen a music chair like that, and i love the cute folding chair! i'll be back to see the redo:)


So glad you visited and left a comment, I enjoy hearing from you. Mickie
