Hi,

Thank you for the image.

This is an early 20th century Barber's Chair by Koken.

On today's market, in good working condition, this could sell for $2000 - $4000.

You may want to start with contacts on this site to learn about finding parts and restoration:

Please let me know if you have additional questions on this chair.

How do i know the parts will fit

Hi,

I provide valuations; conservation, repair and build of barber chairs are not in my wheelhouse.

Your best first step for such would be to go to this site and forums for barber chair repair:
