This is so not GF related, but I thought some of ya’ll would appreciate the beauty of this chair I just bought for cheap in Berkley, CA. This is a “Milwaukee Chair Co. For Rucker Fuller Desk Co. San Francisco” office chair and and it appears to be from 1914-1916. I believe it was a part special order for the city of San Francisco which makes it even more special. (Think of all of the special butts that could have sat in this chair! )
I was hoping someone may know where to get replacement springs that might work for the chair’s mechanism. I can’t find another example exactly like it on the internet. There are tons of Milwaukee chairs/mechanisms, but not any with the same tilting, swivel, height adjustment capabilities. It’s missing two springs where you see the bungee cord. Any ideas or info on the chair would be very appropriated!
(If you check my facebook post below you’ll see info on a very similar municipal chair I found for sale and tons more pics of the markings and mechanism.)
