Vintage 1950's Bar Stools (set of 4) for sale
Item ID: 387013
This set of 4 bar stools were probably designed for a 1950s "rec room". The "Howard Johnson orange" Naugahyde seat and back is a perfect contrast to the glossy chrome frame. The very slim profile accentuates seat height of stool and the stools are very stable. All the seats rotate to the left and right almost 145 degrees. The stools will work in a small space like a kitchen/dining counter.
Weisshouse is known for high end furniture, flooring, and accessories as well as unique, vintage one-of-a-kind items. Recently, we purchased four bar stools that once belonged to the infamous mobster Hoboken Joe Stassi.
In a post from http://www.sonnysmobsocialclub.com/mobblog.html, "Sonny" states, " A number of years ago, I had a good friend named Joe Stassi, who was known in mob circles as “Joe Rogers.” Who was Joe Rogers? Joe was like a grandfather who had been a feared killer in his early days, most notably for arranging the murder of Dutch Schultz on Luciano’s orders, who became the representative for the mob in Havana during its heyday. In his book about the mob in Cuba, “Havana Nocturne,” T. J. English writes about weekly mob summit meetings in Havana, “These meetings took place on Thursday or Friday at the Miramar home of Joe Stassi, the gravelly-voiced Mafioso…Stassi’s home was located on a winding, well-hidden road…not far from the site of Lansky’s highly anticipated Hotel Riviera…with Stassi presiding as a kind of go-between for the various parties in attendance…along with Meyer, and sometimes his brother, Jake, the participants included [Santo] Trafficante, the Cellini brothers…others in attendance were a collection of men…most with experience in the casino-gambling business – who filled out the lower ranks of the Havana mob.” Joe Rogers, was the ultimate insider…and Joe Rogers was my friend."
