Look what the peacock chair fairy left me

Posted on Fri, 16 May 2008 by midcenturyjo


So excited. I have another peacock chair and this one is a beauty! Made in the 70s by the man who taught my blind husband to weave cane (yes the typical cliche of a blind man making baskets!) and stored in a shed since his retirement the now 73 year old gentleman let my husband have it for a reasonable price and the promise to help with some cane weaving jobs. He just finished weaving a basket for a hot air balloon and he’s supposed to be retired. I would love to have seen his shop in it’s heyday. I was too excited to wait until it was in my office to take a photo. It’s currently drying after a warm soapy wash. Tomorrow hopefully photos of it gracing a corner of my retro office.

Let me tell you, you are one lucky b*tch. I can’t even sit on mine it’s in such bad shape and was so poorly made to begin with. I hate you.
