Crown Chair, Ca 1955, Los Angeles

The chair was made in
Los Angeles, California,
by the father of our client.
He was an  upholsterer
at the Crown Company
in downtown lalaland.

All the innards were
cleaned and restored exactly
as they were originally.
The new showcover
is reminiscent of the
original fabric from 1955.

The original fabric was intact; MPFC salvaged some from the outside back of it to make pillows for our client, allowing a bit of the history to be played out in the conservation.
