What is a belmont barber chair worth?
The Belmont Barber Chair was one of the best and affordable along with being the most durable chairs, in their time. They are common in certain areas of North America and not common in others. The chairs were very popular in the early 1950's and prior and are still utilized today in many existing Barber Shops both in the USA Canada and Latin America. The chairs are getting rare as Barber Shops are unfortunately closing out, due to forced government regulations and the lack of new Barbers.
Men and some women wanting to be "men only" Barbers must perform female orientated/ related trade hairstylist testing/ apprenticeship and qualifications during their time at trade school. The potential men and women wanting to be solely a Man's Barber are not interested in salon stylist aspect. The trade is therefore not replenished with Barbers and is dying out (very unfortunately).
The value of the Belmont Barber Chair is subject to the following conditions:
If the hydraulics in the center piston are in working order and the chair will stay in an elevated position with an average sized person seated in the chair, this is normally what you would consider to be desirable. The chrome is another point of interest and will normally flake or be scratched near the floor. This is caused by foot/ sweeping impact and cleaning solutions commonly used on floors when cleaning.
The leatherette is another area of concern but can be replaced quite easily. A feature that is sometimes lost from the actual chair is the head rest. These items were normally guarded when the chair was originally in the Barbershop but have been lost in some cases when the chair has been moved or retired. The value of the chair is higher of this back or neck rest is intact. Another item of interest and not available in most cases is the paper roll that fits into the neck rest. These are not easily found in today's day and age.
If all the original parts are in good working order and intact, these chairs can range in price from a minimum of $600.00 to $2000.00 for low to average condition or $2000.00 to approximately $6,000.00 for a prime condition unit.
A prime unit would be unscratched or no flaking/ no worn chrome, no tears original leatherette, perfect hydraulics, shiny aluminum foot rests and of course the neck or back rest in perfect condition with paper. A nice straight blade strop will finish the decor of the chair, if attached. A bonus piece was the child seat, normally a wooden board covered in the same leatherette. Some chairs have a hole right at both chrome hand rests on the chair's arm rests. There were used for small utility or barber tool table or ashtrays that would fit inside these holes. They have a bent piece of metal which fit exactly into the hole and swiveled. These extra items if recovered or are with the chair, can bring the value slightly higher in any event.
To add hydraulic oil to an old Belmont barber chair, locate the nut on the base of the chair down by the foot area. Remove the nut and add the oil by using a small funnel. A Belmont barber chair must not be laid on its side for transporting because the oil will leak out.

There are two chambers an upper and a lower. If the chair is all the way down the fluid is in the upper chamber. When the barber selects the chair to go up the fluid from the top is forced through a metering valve to the lower chamber. As the lower chamber fills the chair moves up into the space that is vacated in the upper chamber.
When you pump up the client by pressing down on the hydraulic base of the chair, the client goes up
You can open the hydraulic cylinder and piston.

The difference between a cantilever chair and a normal chair is that a cantilever chair is easier movable and more flexible. The chair is however more expensive, but for the features it gives it is worth it.
1914-D is not a rare date for Barber Dimes. Well-worn it's worth about $1.00 -- lightly worn with a complete & strong LIBERTY it's worth about $15.00 -- a nice uncirculated one is worth about $75.00
These chairs are common but are collected. If it is a single dining chair, then it would not be worth very much. A set of 6 or 8 dining chairs would be worth more. If it is an single easy chair with a more complex frame, then it might be worth more money but it would be impossible to value it without seeing a photograph.

Barber chairs are often raised and lowered using gas or hydraulic struts. These struts work by using strong springs or pressurized gas. Some of these devices can be recharged, or have replaceable seals, but others are disposable items that are replaced as a unit.
