3 COSCO FOLDING CHAIRS

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 Cosco Fashionfold folding chairs and play cards into the wee hours of the night--Peterman/Pendorton perfection. That is until one day in the fall of 1958 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 folding card table and 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.

ITEM DESCRIPTION:
Here's a cool set of 3 Cosco Fashionfold chairs made in the U.S.A. back in 1955, dripping with mid-century modern style. These well-made, sturdy chairs use a gate-fold method to fold down--the seat folds up and the legs pivoting in for space saving storage. The chairs each stand 31" tall with 16" wide X 14.5" deep seats. They fold down to less than 5" thick. Made of a bronze colored metal frame with vinyl covered, contoured seat pad. Each chair still has its original instruction label under the seat.

CONDITION:
These chairs are in good vintage condition, very sturdy and ready to provide years of service. The bronze metal finish have a few scuffs and light scratches but no major issues and no rust. All the leg pads are in place. The vinyl on the seat pads have a few small tears and wear spots--not bad considering their age. The seat pads could easily be recovered if you prefer. The chairs all fold up smoothly and seats snap into position securely.
