This adorable scoop chair is a real treasure. Here is some really cool information about the history behind the chair. http://midcenturymodernist.com/2008/furniture-objects/lounge-chairs/scoop-chair-by-carter-bros-furniture/?vm=r Apparently Scoop chairs have been part of the sets of the Gilmore Girls and a couple other t.v./movie sets. Too fun. A great mid-century collection piece!!!!
The Naugahyde is still in great, soft, pliable condition. The curved wood of the seat and legs of the chair are in good vintage condition. They have a few nicks and scratches that are typical of a 50-60 year-old chair. Picture 5 shows the only problem that I could find with the naugahyde on my inspection. The vinyl around the cording has hairline slits in a few places. It is pretty hard to notice though. The other issue is the chair seems to have been smooshed on that back left corner (right looking at it). Apparently the owner liked to lean in that direction more. One of the front legs has a slight lean to it, but all legs have been checked, reinforced, and are solid.
Happy shopping. You will not regret purchasing this wonderful piece.

This measures 31" to the top of the back. It sits low - 1 ft. off the floor. It is 1 ft.11 in. wide. It's weight for shipping is 20 lbs.
