Theo A Kochs Company Chicago-Barber Chair

All parts and pieces came original and all together. My uncle had restored the metals to clean it up, and the leather was reupholstered which is not original to what I believe was black, but chair is burgundy leather now. Head rest is in working original condition. Porcelain is also in nearly perfect condition and original. Hydraulic pump is also in working condition as well. Over all, the chair is at original condition except the upholstery with all original working parts.I would just like to see what it is worth and maybe get a little history on it.

Just posted a comment to another lady on here with a barber chair. I thought hers was about circa 1920ish, like mine. Now I'm wondering if BOTH of ours are older, like yours! (haha) Mine looks a lot like yours, all original, in great shape, but I was told it was only worth about $300-500. HOWEVER!!! There is a Koken chair listed on ebay right now for $2k.

Patent rights ran for 14-17 years when these chairs were made, add 17 years to the last patent date will give you a date range for the chair EG. "patented 1913"= 1913-1930.

I have 4 barbers chairs with the walnut side panels They don't have a patent number but do have serial numbers under each seat. My father inlaw had a barbers shop in West Street Durban South Africa and I would love to know more about them.
Many thanks
