I just purchased a shoemaker oak swivel desk chair, with its original copper label. It has been restored (ie painted gray and made beautiful, by today's standards). Now I have to spend hours actually saving the chair from the eventual garbage dump. But, for 40 dollars it will fit beautifully inside the opening in my Stickley desk.
I have a Shoemaker oak roll top desk that I inherited from my grandfather. It has been in the family for, I believe, something like 50 years. Have you ever come up with any information on the company beyond the ad? Thanks! Kevin
Sorry, no other info. Glad you have something special from your granddad.
