There are many types and styles of these chairs; most having the same badging as this one, "1st Class" on the head and "S. S. New Amsterdam" at the foot. Pictured in this post are two such chairs that I restored for a customer. If you click on any picture you can zoom in for the detail.....
An added bonus was that while the chair was in pieces I made a template of each and every piece so that the chair could be reproduced for future clients.
More pictures and details after the jump:
The one distinguishing feature that generally is not copied over from the originals is the teak wood and the curves of the legs, arm rests, and slats.
|Notice the curves on each of the legs|
All this ensures a long lasting comfortable chair that will ease any passage for a first class ticket holder.
