One of the problems I have as a collector is that my mid century collection gets a little too big very often. As a result, I have to sell some pieces to replace them with the new ones. I buy and sell as a hobby. I have a job and I attend school as well so I buy and sell mid century items whenever I have some free time. I try to sell things at a low price. However, if you think the price is too high, please MAKE ME A REASONABLE OFFER. Many of the items I sell are highly collectible and in good vintage condition. I love them all but I am not using them and I do not have room for them at the moment. Please send me an e-mail for further information: email@example.com. Here are some pieces I have for sale.
CHAIR BY JACK VAN DER MOLES
This listing is for a gorgeous chair, designed by Jack Van Der Moles for Jamestown Lounge Co N.Y. The back has a modern curved design. It is a little heavy and ergonomic (you can adjust the height and inclination). The fabric is vinyl. I believe the wood is oak or walnut. The base is made of aluminum. One of our relatives was the original owner and got the chair in 1961. Unfortunately, the back is partially broken, hence the price. In order to repair the back, I am not sure if you just have to glue it or if it requires more work. I am asking $33.00 CASH for the chair.
