Vintage Love ~ Scoop Chair with arms!

My hand and shoulder injury have been keeping me away from blogging. I have been on the system only when it is really necessary, so blogging has taken a back seat. (snifff!!). My cousin spotted this chair on SF craigslist and sent me the link (sweet!!), and I had to share it here :)

Item: Scoop Chair
Manufacturers: Carter Brothers, Salisbury, NY
Period: Circa 1950
Status: Awesome, Drooling!

Made from a single piece/plank of plywood, bent to form the body of the chair.

The seller says " This chair can also be found with a single cushion, but the two cushion one is very rare and was discontinued in 1958."

Nominally priced for a vintage MCM piece, in beautiful condition. I admire people who maintain their homes and their furniture/furnishings well!!
