RRod base (-1) one piece upholstery pad

32" H by 19" W by 21" D

Seat height 18 3/4"

This example has the self-leveling glides characteristic of 1954 models.  The beautiful, thick, one-piece upholstered pad is covered in "Pin Check" fabric, a woven blend described as "natural, brown and black," which was one of only two upholstery options originally offered for these pads.  In 1952 and 1952 the options were leather -- "Postman's Bag Brown" and fabric, "Pin Check" or "black."   That this particular pad has remained soft and thick may be because of its stuffing, which is described on its label as "hair felt" and "latex foam rubber."
