Antique Dental ChairHead Rest
I will make every reasonable effort to take custom photos for active bidders. Just drop me a note describing what you need to see (36 hours prior to auction end) and I will do my best to accomodate your request.
I have just retired from private practice in East Texas and had this antique dental chair as a conversation piece in one of my treatment rooms.It is fully operational and in good condition considering it's age (80+). The hydraulics are still in great shape and show no signs of leakage (internally or externally). The chair swivels, lifts, and tilts. The headrest pads show their age as they are dried out and cracked. (see 2nd picture, left column) . Other than that, the finish and seat coverings are in good condition. Despite the fact that it has some sentimental value, it is totally inappropriate as a dental chair and must go. So, I've decided to list this chair with no reserve. This chair would make a great addition to a billiard room or home theater. This item is both heavy and awkward to transport. So, I have made arrangements to have it properly crated and weighed for shipment. Due to size and weight, a frieight carrier will likely be needed if it is inconveniet for you to pick up items locally. Because of this, an advance quote for shipping costs will be dependent on your specific requirements. However, unlike some ebay sellers, I refuse to exploit shipping and handling costs. Packaging, handling, and shipping expenses will be limited to actual costs which will be fully documented and disclosed upon request. I estimate the shipping weight of this chair to be somew between 200-300 Lbs. I know the vast majority of folks bidding on Ebay are honest, responsible, and fair minded people. So please understand that the (fine print) policies outlined below are NOT directed at those of you who represent the "good faith" majority. Sections 1-7 below are only intended to prevent misunderstandings. 1) Shipping - Buyer will be responsible for shipping and insurance costs related to this item. Shipping costs will be limited to actual costs as quoted by the buyer's carrier of choice. For larger items that must go by freight (>100 Lbs) additional crating and packing costs may apply. Depending on the method of shipment and distance, it is difficult to predict these charges in advance. However, seller will work with buyer to find the most economical solution. And again, only actual charges will apply. Loss or Damage occurring in transit will be the responsibility of the shipper, not the seller. It is for this reason that the seller suggests the buyer request adequate shipping insurance. 2) Reserve Auctions - In those cases w a reserve has been set, it is important to understand why this will not be disclosed to bidders who request it. This is simply a case of fairness and ethics. If only some of the bidders know what the reserve is they will have an unfair bidding advantage over those who don't. So please do not request that I disclose this. Thanks :-) 3) Communications - Due to the anonymous nature of on-line auctions, quality communication is key. If a bidding error or dispute occurs or t are circumstances that may delay or prevent completion of a transaction, proactive and timely communication from the bidder will be given the highest consideration. 4) Photos - Every effort has been made to produce accurate photographs of the items listed. Flash photography often causes glare, reflection, and distortion. Tfore, it is only used when absolutely necessary. Natural lighting sources are used for most photos. Other than sizing, cropping, exposure, and background removal, photos are not altered in any way. Seller reserves the right to use published photos in lieu of actual photos but will disclose this in the ad. Should you have any questions, please don't hes...
