Treasure Chest Thursday - highchair


Here is another family treasure... though only about 70 years old. It is the highchair I used as a child... 1939-early 1940s, I suppose. A gift from my maternal grandparents, I've been told. Still in great shape - used by all five boys over perhaps 20 years. Notice the original leather strap is till in place. Never refinished, as far as I know. A bit different than those my grandchildren use, with safety this and that.... ;-)

Families are forever ;-)

  3. I love this chair. My husband and I looked everywhere for one like this when our daughter was born in 2005. We finally found one and it looks just like yours!

    I have enjoyed reading your blog.

  4. Wow! Good for you, Julie.

    Glad to hear they are still around.

    This blog is lot of fun. Keeps me hopping, but I guess that is the idea... to get lots of these items, photos and stories, out there for others to enjoy, as well!

    ;-)
