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 metal folding chairs and play cards into the wee hours of the night--Peterman/Pendorton perfection. That is until one day in the fall of 1962 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 black metal 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.

For sale is a nice pair of vintage Samsonite folding chairs circa 1950s to early 60s. These quality built, USA made metal chairs are painted light gray with Naugahyde vinyl covered wood seats-- one is red and one is green. Each seat is 30" tall, 18" wide with a 17" high seat rise, 15" X 15" seat pad and an 18" wide by 7" high back rest. These super sturdy chairs have a nice industrial look to them with a splash of color. Great for extra seating for holiday entertaining.

These chairs are in good vintage condition with some scratches and scuffs to the metal frame but the vinyl is in great shape with no rips, holes or tears. We found no rust and all the floor protector ends are in place. There is some handwriting on the bottom of the chairs.
