Greetings, The Item Offered Is One(1) OLD "SQUARE BRAND" WOODEN FRAME VANITY BENCH WITH VINYL PADDED SEAT, MANUFACTURED BY THE CHITTENDEN & EASTMAN FURNITURE COMPANY OF BURLINGTON, IOWA!

I Can't Supply A Lot Of Information On This Vanity Bench, It Belonged To My Late Maternal Grandparents & I Only Have What My Grandmother Told Me About It To Go By.

My Grandparents Owned & Operated 2 Apartment Houses Here In Keokuk From 1959-1985. This Bench Came From One Of The Apartment Houses. Sometimes, When A Tenant Moved Out They Would Leave Old Furniture, Clothes & Other Items Behind. My Grandfather Would Go In To Patch, Repair & Repaint The Unit, If Needed, Before It Was Rented Again & Haul Away Any Discarded Items. My Grandmother Told Me That He Brought This Bench Home, Some Time In The Early 1960's, With The Intention Of Refinishing It, But It Ended Up Sitting In Their Garage For Decades.

For Some Reason When He Passed On In 1985 & She Moved Here In 1989 She Would Not Leave It Behind & So It Ended Up Here In The Basement & Has Sat Down There For Over 20 Years. The Other Day I Got Curious To See If There Was A Manufacturers Mark On It & Looked At The Seat Bottom, The Label Is Faded But Still Readable.

Information Obtained On The Internet States That The Chittenden & Eastman Furniture Company Produced Furniture Under The "SQUARE BRAND" Name From About 1890-1970. The Furniture Was Produced At Their Factories At Burlington, Iowa.


I Can't Positively Date It To Any Particular Era, But I Am Inclined To Think 1920's - 1940's

I Am Not An Expert On Furniture, Nor Wood, So I Have No Idea As To What Wood Was Used To Make This, Perhaps Walnut.

Still In Excellent Condition, No Major Flaws. Will Need To Be Sanded & Refinished, As Some Of The Varnish Is Scuffed & Worn Thin. The Vinyl Covered Seat Cushion Is Still In Good Shape, A Little Discolored!!

Stands 17 Inches Tall From Top Of Cushion To Floor:

21 Inches Wide Across Front & Back:

13 Inches Side Depth(Front To Back):

Questions Are Always Welcome & Are Answered As Soon As Possible!

SOLD AS IS!! NO RETURN!!! NO REFUND!! NO NEGOTIATION OF FINAL SALE PRICE!!!

Many Thanks For Viewing This Listing!
