Koken Barber Shop Coat Tree/Hat Rack

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Everybody is always looking for a place to hang their coats. This is the one! These are so rare because they were only for commercial use. Those that do exist always have broken hooks. This one is pristine. The hooks themselves have the original nickle plating. The blue base is actually porcelain, as in your stove, refrigerator, and those barber chairs that were made in the 20's. This isn't going to fall over. The center pole has been repainted white. It can easily be painted over to your liking. That section is made out of wood. This will easily fit into a residential setting. This coat tree does indeed bear the Koken label. Everybody knows that stands for "excellence in barber supplies." One rarely gets a shot at such a magnificent piece of furniture to "hang your hat on." Who's going to be the lucky one? The diameter measurement is from hook to hook.
