Wooden Folding Chairs

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Charming vintage wood folding stadium seats are perfect for an event, or to use for extra seating.

These chairs were made by the Snyder Chair Co. in Pennsylvania which later became the Palmer Snyder Furniture Co. The company produced this model of chair until 2004 when it was discontinued. The chairs we have are mostly fastened with flat-head screws. Philips head screws first saw use in the 1940s. So, while there was a period when both screw-types were in use, these chairs were likely produced during or prior to the 1940s (Some of our chairs were re-fastened with Philips head screws over the years as they needed maintenance).

In general, the lighter blond chairs with less pronounced wood grain are Maple, and the darker stained chairs with grain that sometimes looks like zebra print are oak. Sometimes we see both woods used on a single chair, or seat slats having been replaced with one or the other wood.Lastly, some of the oak chairs received a light yellow finish.
