I purchased this chair over 35 years ago in Hollywood, California and had it redone in white paint and a faux grey snake skin type of fabric at Beverly Hills Upholstery.  SEE ALL PICTURES.  This chair was designed by Maurice Bailey for Monteverdi-Young and is very hard to find. This chair is very heavy solid wood and construction all solid wood legs and frame.  The curved HORN design with solid brass ends that unscrew on left and right side ends.  The faux snakeskin fabric is grey and upholstered around the two vertical wood supports that hold the HORN design into place.  The seat portion is easily removeable by unscrewing the screws on the underside of frame and is independently separate from the wood FRAME.  (see all pictures).  There was another identical one for sale but sold several years ago... so I pictured it in my last photo above.

In 1993 when I moved from California back to Oregon the horn (upper portion) got knocked off so had a handyman repair it and screw on the horn to the vertical wood supports (left and right).  I was going to have it repainted and have it sanded down and repainted black lacquer but figured I'd just sell it as is as new buyer might want to redo or desire different color.  CONDITION: Structurally very sturdy and sound but the top horn design like portion during the move came off. I had a handyman repair it but selling as is.  The horn portion on the left tip end about 2" broken off and is a clean break (it's been reglued on and structurally sound).  The underside of the wood horn where fastened to the vertical supports there is one shallow wood chip on each side (underside).  These can be easily filled and sanded down when refinishing the wood.  The fabric is in MINT condition so does not need any work or attention.  Would be simple to refinish the wood portions and refinish.

Email if any questions... all sales are final. CASH only!

If interested in viewing let me know what city you live in and when (day and time) you would like to come by and look at this item and I'll get back to you with contact information, directions, etc. I'm retired so can show it daytimes too or early evenings. I live on Flamingo Avenue over by Home Depot in Nampa. I am on oxygen so if you want to view I wear a mask and ask you do the same as there are still people out there catching covid.
