I have a vendor in Pakistan who makes them for considerably less than the $1,700 + pricetag I've seen them for at museum gift shops. He has the pattern and photographs of the actual deck chairs in order to make them accurately.
Thank you for the information. I was hopeful that one of the same companies might have still been in business like the company that made the china dinnerware for the ship. Oh well. I guess I will have to settle for a nice reproduction such as those at http://titanic.125west.com/
Please forgive me for blathering on about a silly chair, but my hope is that someone might see just one of my pleas for help & respond.
I have an old deck chair (maybe it's a deck chair) that resembles the cane-backed chair (not the wooden-slatted one). Just last night I found a picture of one recovered from the Mackay-Bennett & my husband & I sat in shock, looking at the computer screen. My chair so closely resembles that chair that we had goosebumps - I felt physically ill for a while.
I know this is an old thread, but I'm hoping that your regulars check the board from time to time for new posts.
I would so appreciate some help from people "in the know", because I know nothing about my chair, other than I love it.
