description:  This un-restored chair features a full leather cushion seat, with cast iron porcelain enameled base, seat and arm rests.  Other features include, full recline, adjustable foot rest, and all exposed metal is (had been) nickel plated.  The Theo A Kochs Company logo is cast in the nickel plated step plate and foot rest.

information:  This chair is in original condition, never having been restored.  As noted above all of the exposed metal would have been nickel plated, giving a shiny chrome look.  As illustrated in the image gallery, all of the porcelain is in good shape, displaying the high durability and wear of the porcelain enameled cast iron technique.
