Vintage School Chair, Coral Colored, Vintage Vanguard American Seating 1967


  • Details
    Here we have a vintage child's school chair by Vanguard American Seating, of Grand Rapids, Michigan. In the most attractive coral color, you could imagine! It has an adjustable seat height of 10" 11" or 12". It is shown here at the 12" seat height. The back is made of blow molded Dexlon plastic and has a Mid Century design to it. The seat is a deep sculpted fiberglass that is roomy and comfortable. It has tapered legs that project behind the chair to help protect the walls and from it tipping. There are rubber cushioned steel guides that make moving the chair quiet and smooth on any floor. This chair originally came in 3 sizes, this is the smallest. The American seating company put so much thought into their school and office furniture, they even considered how colors effect learning. As they put it, not enough color, depresses. Too much color distracts. A calm coral color, this would help in learning. This is a quality chair, well made in the US. There are of course expected flaws from use and age. The seat is slightly lighter in color than the back (still coral though). There are surface scratches and two thin superficial cracks on the seat near the front. They do not affect the chair in any way, it is part of regular use. Please see photo 10 and video for a closer look at that. The legs are a bit rusty, not all the way around though. They could be restored.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    If I need to return an item, what is the process?

    If for some reason you are unhappy with your purchase, send a me a message first. I will send you a prepaid label (USPS Priority), you will download it, print it and put it on the package.
    Try to keep all original packaging it came in/with because 1) I would like to get it back packaged safely 2) when I purchase the label, I have to enter weight and box dimensions so I go off of what it was when it was shipped.
    Once I receive the package, you will get a refund on the price of the item plus tax. You will be responsible for shipping cost, so the price you paid for shipping originally will not be refunded.
    I hope you can understand m, that I cannot cover the cost off shipping

    What if I prefer another shipper, such as UPS or Fedex. Will you ship with them?

    Absolutely! Just let me know prior to purchasing and I can calculate shipping based off 1) your shipper preference 2) your desired shipping time 3) your zip code

    Do you ship internationally?

    Some pieces I do. It will be in the “Shipping” section of the listing. If there is something you see, that I currently don’t have international shipping setup on, send a message and I will consider!

    Will you combine shipping?

    On some things, yes. Sometimes there are pieces that are too fragile for me to comfortably ship with another item. It’s really dependent on the items being purchased. Please message me prior to checkout , to discuss options.
