This awesome vintage shell chair by Burke is iconic Mid-Century Modern decor!

Model #115, manufactured in Dallas, Texas, this chair originally served as seating at the 1st National Bank in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. It swivels left and right on a chrome base.

The white fiberglass shell is structurally excellent and without cracks. There are some minor dark spots and black marks, so it is not perfectly white, but they are not very noticeable.

The chrome base is very sturdy, heavy, and in good condition, however it does have oxidation that could use a polish. The seat cushion has a 1" tear near the back of the fabric. The beauty of this cushion is that it attaches to the base with velcro, making it easy to remove for washing or reupholstering. It would look great recovered in a modern fabric!

Back = 26" tall
Pedestal floor-to-base of seat height = 14"
Seat height = 20" from the ground
Seat = 18.5" wide x 14" deep
Base = 17.5" across
