I am trying to find out any information on the High Point Bending & Chair Co. that was located in Siler NC. I have 6 Hichcock style chairs, pattern 223, Mahogany, that were made by them and am trying to find out their approximate age. The company possibly went out of business in the late 50s.

Hi

I have a High Point Bending and Chair Company of Siler City,NC

This is in excellent original condition with excellent rush seat.

The label shows Model 263AR, it appears to be mahogany.

Could someone tell me what the chair may be worth

Thanks

Dean

We have 5 dining chairs (Hitchcock style) made by the High Point Bending and Chair Company in Siler City.  Pattern # and finish are not visible on th label.   I believe that the finish is either cherry or mahogany.  4 of the chsirs are in good condition.  2 of these need some re gluing on the top of the chair bach.   The 5th chair has a partisl break on one side of the back.   We also have one armchair in this set.  I would like some idea of the value if these chairs and would consider selling the set or just the dining chairs.

I have two of their chairs, one is a swivel pattern 6710....I suspect it's one of the later models, because the tag reads "Boling Chair Company".  So based upon the info you got from the historical society it must have been made after 1956 when they changed from "High Point" to "Boling Chair"...

I saw the pics of the 6700 you were restoring.  The 6710 looks exactly the same, except mine's in way better condition.  The mate is a straight back Boling Chair Company Pattern 6711.

Apparently this site has a program that deletes inappropriate posts - which is great - however it deleted my description of the style of chair. It is not a "hitchdeleted" style, but rather a hitchc**k style chair, or maybe I can type it this way: Hitchcok. Hopefully you get the idea!

From Dick Thomps0n, 8/15/2011  9:03 PM

I have couple of these chairs and am looking to complete the set. They are a hitchdeleted style chair with a rush seat. The bottom has a tag that says the following:

Boling Chair Co.
Craftique
Mellowax 977
#264R

Hi all,

I found the following information on the 'net while researching my own chair...

"After contacting the Chatham, North Carolina Historical Society I received the following information about the High Point Bending and Chair Company: The High Point Bending and Chair Company operated from 1904-1956 when it became the Boling Chair Company, later just the Boling Company. That company is now out of business. The company began in 1901 as the Siler City Bending Company. It made parts for house-drawn vehicles. An investor was M.J. Boling and in 1904 he rescued the failing company reorganizing it into the High Point Bending and Chair Company. In addition to the chair-making plant in Siler City it built a plant in Mount Olive NC to make desks, tables and bookcases, mostly for office use. It was still operating in 1987 when the booklet from which I have taken this information was published and it continued to be owned and operated by the Boling family. I'm not sure when it closed.”

Spiegel-Online auf Satire reingefallen

Der Inhaber der Premium-Wodka-Marke Iordanov Vodka (Niko Jordanov) versteht sich als Mann der Satire
und legt Spiegel-Online rein. Der Journalist hat geglaubt, dass es einen Blocktarif zu 129,- Euro pro Anruf
gibt und hat prompt berichtet, Niko Iordanov gibt Arschbombentipps (Wasserspringen) zu 129,- Euro
pro Anruf.

Christoph Titz schrieb das aber keinesfalls in einer netten Form sondern so, um Niko Iordanov
zu diskreditieren und als Abzocker darzustellen.

Eine peinliche Panne die zeigt, dass es der Spiegel mit der journalisitischen Recherchepflicht nicht mehr ernst nimmt
nur um Leser zu gewinnen.

Nun muss jeder aufpassen, wenn er eine satirische Webseite online stellt, dass er von Spiegel-Online nicht
diskreditiert wird. Der Spiegel greift Satire auf und berichtet diese als wahre Tatsache. Es scheinen dem Magazin
die Themen ausgegangen zu sein.

Der Spiegel verkommt somit zu einem Blatt auf Niveau des Boulevardjournalismus. Peinlich, oder?

Was denkt Ihr?

I just recently acquired 3 Boling Chair Company Chairs. Two are (I guess from reading here) I would describe as jury chairs with curved wood arms that give it an art deco look. I also have 1 desk chair that swivels and rocks. They look like they are maple. They are in pristine condition. They are a sage green. The numbers and tags are on all the chairs. 67979 patton 9111 and 67980 78393 patton 9110. I would love to sell them if anyone is interested. Any questions please fell free to email me. deanngumbert@msn.com

Satiriker Niko Iordanov legt Spiegel-Online rein. Spiegel spielt schlechten Verlierer
Spiegel-Online auf Niko Iordanov 0900-Arschbombe reingefallen

Was soll ich dazu sagen? Hat sich Christoph Titz von Spiegel-Online verarschen lassen! Er glaubte wirklich,
dass Niko Iordanov eine 0900-Nummer f. Arschbomben angemietet hat. Dabei bemerkte er nicht, dass
es gar keinen Blocktarif zu 129,- pro Anruf gibt bzw. gebern kann. Total daneben. ( www.kunstspringen.de )

Nun aber der Skandal: Obwohl Spiegel-Online die Satire bekannt geworden ist und das Landgericht Hamburg
dem Spiegel die Verbreitung des Artikels verboten hat nimmt der Spiegel den verleumderischen Artikel nicht aus dem Netz.

Wieso hat der Spiegel so etwas notwendig? Erst auf Satire reinfallen und dann noch die Satire
als wahr berichten. Schweinerei! So geht man nicht mit den Menschen um, oder was meint Ihr?

I have a Wicker chair made by High Point Bending Co. The color is a muted light green. Needs a new seat. Can anyone tell me about this chair? I believe the small wicker lamp came from there too. One of my Great Aunts owned it first and then it was past on to me. Would love to hear the history and if anyone is collecting these Wicker chairs.

I have a chair with the tag still on the bottom. It's from the Boling Chair Company, pattern 7111, walnut finish. It's in great shape although the arms and edge of the seat show some wear. This is an incredibly solid chair! It reminds me of the old teacher's desk chairs from when I was in elementary school. Anyone know what year it was made and what it might be worth? I may be interested in selling. You can email me at mdrntheory@yahoo.com.

From Miese Recherche, 5/10/2010  3:49 PM

Neue Masche bei Spiegel-Online: Satire als wahr berichten. Der Spiegel geht neue Wege.

Christoph Titz von Spiegel-Online hat eine neue Masche erfunden: Im Netz nach Satire-Seiten suchen und
diese als wahr berichten.

Hier findet Titz Unmengen Material, was er schreiben kann. Eine weitere Recherche scheint nicht notwendig.

Beispiel: Kaufmann Niko Iordanov bot Arschbomben-Tipps zu 129,- Euro pro Anruf an. Das ganze mit
einer 4-stelligen nicht existenten 0900-Nummer. Diese unbekannte Seite, die nur an Niko Iordanov Kumpels
gerichtet war und eine sarkastische Parodie auf die teuren Mehrwertdienstenummern sein sollte griff
Spiegel-Online Christoph Titz auf um eine Sensationsnachricht daraus zu machen.

Dass Christoph Titz dabei seine Recherchepflicht ignoriert interessiert den Spiegel nicht mehr, da dringend
Themen gesucht werden. Das Nachrichtenblatt verkommt zu einem lachhaften Magazin und sollte bald in
Mad-Spiegel umbenannt werden.

Und wenn Christoph Titz gar nicht mehr weiss, was er schreiben soll beschwert er sich, dass andere
Magazine Satire nicht erkennen. Peinlicher kann man sich nicht verhalten. Grundschlechter Journalismus
den Christoph Titz betreibt.

Ich habe die ganzen Geschichten mitgelesen und finde es tragisch, was Christoph Titz sich geleistet hat.
Ich werde einen Zeichner beauftragen der Christoph Titz malt ... der Hintern wird eine Arschbombe sein mit
dem Text, "Auf Niko Iordanovs Arschbombe reingefallen". Mit dem Spiegel kann er sich dann seinen Arsch
abputzen.

Christoph Titz macht sich sogar noch lustig, dass jemand zu Unschuld strafrechtlich verfolgt wurde, auch
ohne zu recherchieren. Christoph Titz nimmt sich der Meinung eines durchgeknallten Staatsanwalts an und
zeigt, dass er gar nicht daran denkt zu recherchieren. Das ist schlampiger Journalismus, den der Spiegel
bisher vermieden hat. Durch neues Personal wie Christoph Titz sinkt der Spiegel auf unterstes Niveau.

Um noch mehr Satire im Internet zu finden hat es Christoph Titz nicht weit:
Der Spiegel selbst berichtet, dass Neandertaler (deleted) mit modernen Menschen hatten. Hier weiss man nicht, ob
die Bezeichnung Satire @ Spiegel nur zur Tarnung vorgeschoben ist, obwohl sich der Spiegel des Wahrheitsgehalts
der Meldung sicher ist. Spiegel-Online fragt sogar in einer Umfrage, wer schon (deleted) mit Neandertalern hatte.

Chrstoph Titz, schreiben Sie!

I have two High Point Bending & Chair Co. Captain's Chairs, Pattern #6710. They 'swivel', with the original brass casters. I picked them up from the Defense Language Institute, Presidio of Monterey, California, back in the mid-1980's when several World War 2-era buildings at the facility were undergoing extensive renovation.   I was told that these two chairs had been in the commandant's office at the base during World War 2, most likely used by the Officers in charge. They have the original High Point paper tags in place. I have no idea what they are worth but am forced to sell them (I no longer have any room for them). They're both in good condition. Can anybody give me a rough idea of what they're worth or who may be interested in them? I'll put them on EBay if necessary but I'm very curious to see if there's a collector or antique store who would appreciate these chairs.

Gute Erfahrungen gemacht:

Casa-Art Holding GmbH

Immobilieninvestitionen als krisensichere Form der Altersvorsorge liegen in diesem Jahr weiterhin im Trend.
Die Casa Art Holding GmbH reagiert auf die starke Nachfrage nach der „Rente in Stein“ mit der Vermittlung
sanierter Wohngebäude in bevorzugten Lagen im Rhein-Main-Gebiet. Rund 300 Neukunden pro Jahr lassen
sich von den vielfältigen Angeboten der Casa Art Holding GmbH überzeugen.

Aktuelle Studien beweisen es: Nicht einmal 20 Prozent der deutschen Bevölkerung besitzen eine Immobilie – der Rest wohnt zur Miete. Dabei kann das Immobilieneigentum nach Erfahrung der Casa Art Holding GmbH eine sichere Form der Altersvorsorge sein. Wer im Alter mietfrei wohnen oder zusätzlich zur Rente von Mieteinnahmen aus einer Immobilie profitieren kann, der braucht sich der Casa Art Holding GmbH zufolge um die Versorgungslücke, die in nicht wenigen Fällen mit dem Eintritt in den Ruhestand entsteht, keine Gedanken zu machen. Wer sich schon in jungen Jahren für den Kauf einer Immobilie entscheidet, die er selbst bewohnt, und es schafft, diese Immobilie bis zum Eintritt in den Ruhestand abzubezahlen, der spart im Alter das Geld für die Miete und die Belastungen für das Eigentum fallen auch weg. Allein dadurch kann die Versorgungslücke nach Auffassung der Casa Art Holding GmbH zum größten Teil geschlossen werden.

Wichtig ist aus Sicht der Casa Art Holding GmbH allerdings, dass vor dem Kauf einer Immobilie einige entscheidende Punkte beachtet werden. Dazu gehören die Lage des Objektes, der Zustand sowie alle Fragen, die die Finanzierung und die damit verbundenen Zusatzkosten betreffen. Oberste Priorität muss dabei nach Ansicht der Casa Art Holding GmbH sein, dass die Immobilie vor Eintritt in den Ruhestand vollständig abbezahlt ist, sodass nur noch Rücklagen für die Instandhaltung gebildet werden müssen.

Die Casa Art Holding GmbH hat die Wertanlageform „Rente in Stein“ schon seit 2001 verinnerlicht und sich auf das Refurbishment und die Vermarktung hochwertiger Bestandsimmobilien spezialisiert. Dabei hat die Casa Art Holding GmbH sich auf die Projektierung von Mehrfamilienhäusern konzentriert. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf Gründerzeithäusern und Wohnensembles der sechziger und siebziger Jahre, doch auch attraktive Neubauten finden Berücksichtigung. Die Casa Art Holding GmbH strukturiert den Verkauf der Wohnungen dabei in drei verschiedene Geschäftsfelder und Zielgruppen: Verkauf an Mieter (Mieterprivatisierung), Verkauf vermieteter Wohnungen an Kapitalanleger sowie Verkauf freistehender Wohnungen an Eigennutzer. Vermarktet werden nur Immobilien in guten und sehr guten Lagen im gesamten Rhein-Main-Gebiet. Die Casa Art Holding GmbH sieht sich angesichts von rund 300 zufriedenen Neukunden pro Jahr mit ihrem Geschäftskonzept für die Zukunft gut positioniert und bewertet den Immobilienbesitz als eine auch in den kommenden Jahren krisensichere und ertragreiche Ergänzung der Altersvorsorge.

Des Weiteren projektiert die Casa Art Holding GmbH auch deutschlandweit Bestandsimmobilien mit außergewöhnlichem Renditepotential, prüft Mikro- und Makrostandort der jeweiligen Immobilie und erarbeitet passgenaue Sanierungskonzepte.

     For many years, before I retired, I was a manufacture rep in the furniture industry and was at the High Point Market from two to four times a year.
     During that time, Boling Chair Company had a space which was manned by a wonderful gentleman named Tom Moore who lived in Richmond VA.
     As has been mentioned, Boling Chair Company was a wonderful company that made very good valued products. They were not expensive but really a very good product for the price.

I too have a "Boling Chair Company" of Siler, NC Walnut Rocking Chair purchased around 1970. It is a Model No. 471. Considering the workmanship of this chair, which has survived 35 yrs of Army contracted moving companies, it is a shame the company suffered the fate of so many American family-based companies. Because of what it represents I have decided that it will be kept in the family.          ;           ;           ;           ;           ; Note to Howard[13Dec09] keep the chairs!

From Glastone Clapp, 11/30/2009  4:04 PM

The Boling Company was founded by Malvola Jackson Boling in the early 1900s. After his death, it was run primarly by his son and son-in-law, Mr. F. Jackson Boling and Mr. K.G. Clapp respectively, both of Siler City. These 2 businessmen managed a company that produced quality wood furniture and consistently turned a profit even in difficult times. After the death of F. Jackson Boling in 1967, the operations of the company fell to his son, F. Jackson Boling Jr. He succumbed to his own greed and lack of business expertise and, with the help of one of his cronies, Ben Foust, ran the company into the ground. Those 2 men used the company as their own private cash cow and acted only with regard for their best interest. Both were run out of office by the shareholders in the mid-80s. They then attempted a turnaround but the damage was too widespread and bankruptcy loomed. The assets of the company were sold in the early 90s and the new owners attempted to continue operations for a time, but they too failed.

I own 6 chairs manufactured by Boling Chair Company, Silar City, NC. I aquired them from an antique store in Southport, NC a little over seven years ago. There are (2) arm chairs pattern 223, and (4) side chairs matching pattern 222. They are ladder back design painted in a Hitch(deleted) style, black with gold accents. They have original rush seats and all seats are in mint condition. There are a few minor chips in paint finish at bottom of chair legs on just a few of the chairs. I am looking to sell, contact me if interested anancemanning@yahoo.com, located in Charleston, SC.

From Neil Hever, 8/10/2009  6:28 PM

I have five Boling chair company office chairs that look to be from '56-'63. They are bent back chairs with green upholstery on the seat and back. The tags are intact but regrettably they do not contain any model or style information. I've searched the web and can't locate anything remotely similar. Wondering where to look for more info on these. Neil

From Mar, 8/1/2009  8:48 PM

I have a chair, paper on bottom states: Sikes Chair Company, Buffalo, New York. The pattern is 1349 and inked beside it is "1/2 F".

   The wood is in very good condition. However, it was reed or cane or some material on seat that has been cut away (no damage to wood).

If anyone is interested in this, please let me know. I want to get rid of it. I have too much junk and not ambitious enough for e-bay...

Thank you.

From Karen, 6/14/2009  12:12 AM

Please pardon the convoluted story. In the 1950s in North Carolina, My parents bought a beautiful wooden rocker, which I inherited and which was stolen from me in Raleigh, N.C. in 1995. I remember the rocker had a piece of paper with the name of a city (I remembered it as Lexington) stapled under the seat.

Today in a Salvation Army here in Raleigh, I found a chair that was so similar that I bought it immediately, even though it wasn't quite as large or heavy as I remember my old chair. The paper tag on the bottom of this chair says Boling Chair Company, Siler City, pattern 417. This info led me to this forum.

A comparison to an old photo shows that this isn't my original chair, but it's obviously made by the same company, and I now believe the tag on the bottom of my old chair must have said "High Point" rather than "Lexington."

If anyone out there purchased a High Point furniture company rocker with the tag under the seat in Raleigh in 1995, or if you think you might have this chair now, PLEASE contact me. I would love to get this chair back, and I'm willing to pay. I'm at mannsworld (at) gmail (dot) com. I can provide photos of both chairs.

From tlbradley, 5/1/2009  1:05 PM

This is an update on my reply n 4/6/2009 above. I have 5 side chairs and 1 matching captains chair which according to the tag were manufactured by the Boling Chair Company in Silver City, NC. The Pattern is # 222-R and the finish is Von Canon Rembrandt. The chairs were purchased by my mother in-law in 1960. The chairs are high backed and have a "ladders" design with four rungs.   The rungs look like small waves with the high point of the wave in the middle of the back.   They have rush seats and are in good condition. The chairs are valued at $100 - $150 each. We want to sell the chairs as a set of six.

From Missy, 4/24/2009  2:44 PM

I was just given a gift by my stepmom of eight ladderback, walnut chairs manufactured by Boling. The "ladders" design bends slightly up in the middle and the finials are of a tapered, conical design. They have rush seats, are in excellent condition. One is a "captains" chair with arms, 7 are side chairs. I am looking to purchase more of the chairs with arms as they have a bigger seat and are more comfortable. Again, they are in beautiful condition as they have graced her dining room since the 1980s. Would anyone have any of the arm chairs for sale or maybe to swap for the side chairs plus? Thank you for responding.

From Lano, 4/15/2009  12:55 AM

I have a walnut banker/courthouse/jury style chair made by the Sikes Company. The wooden arms have curves that give it a Deco look. Has a leather front with two (2) significant cracks in the leather; apparent wear/tear. The back, however, is covered in red leather and is in perfect condition. The brass nails are all intact on both leathers. How do I determine the value considering its damage? Should I get it repaired?

From TLBRADLEY, 4/6/2009  12:48 AM

I have 6 Hitch(deleted) chairs (5 side chairs and 1 matching are chair) which according to the tag were manufactured by the Boling Chair Company in Silver City, NC. The Pattern is # 222-R and the finish is Von Canon Rembrandt. The chairs were purchased by my mother in-law in 1960. The seats are caned, they are high backed with four curved (the curves look like waves) pieces of wood for the backing. Would anyone know an approximate value of the chairs?

From lillie, 4/2/2009  5:01 PM

My husband bought to chairs at an auction, one has a tag with High Point Bending and Chair Company on it. It also says it is pattern 222-R and finish Mahogany. The rush seats are in bad condition, but I can replace them. Does anyone know the age of these chairs.

From Barbara Ann, 3/30/2009  2:40 PM

Thank you to c. walls and Faith Ann for the history they shared about the High Point Bending and Chair Company. My husband and I just acquired 6 chairs (Pattern #5505; Finish - light oak) that belonged to his grandparents from Valley City, North Dakota. The chairs and round oak table (imprinted "Martin Sondahl, Valley City, ND) have traveled to Seattle, WA, Mesa, AZ, and back again to North Dakota. It will be very interesting to see if we can restore the table and chairs to their original beauty. We believe this dining room set was purchased from Martin Sondahl's furniture store in Valley City, ND, in the early 1900s.

From Naomi, 3/29/2009  1:49 PM

I got a chair with a tag on the back (brass?) that says "BOEING BAC 80818" and a tag underneath that says, "Manufactured by High Poing Bending & Chair Co., Siler City, NC, Pattern No. 7100-MS Chair, Finish Light Oak."
Anyone know what this maybe worth?

From Andy, 2/3/2009  1:56 AM

I grew up in Siler City in the 1960s. I went to school with members of the Boling family. Nice people. My parents still own Boling chairs bought in the early 60s.
The Boling furniture company is still in business but now in Mount Olive, NC, about a little over an hour east/southeast of Siler City. I don't know if any members of the family are still affiliated.

Any info on when they were likely made, what kind of value they might have, and what wood they were made out of would be greatly appreciated.

I have 6 beautiful ladder-back mahogany chairs(5 side chairs and 1 matching arm chair) with some of the original tags on the bottom of them indicating they were made at the High Point Bending and Chair Company, Siler City, NC. There are 5 "rungs" and the top rung has a beautiful fleur-de-lis type of shape. I believe the rush seats are original and I have been told that having them re-caned will not hurt their value. The pattern number on the tag states 222 R. Does anyone know how old they might be or their value? I learned through research that the original factory burned down on December 22, 1905. Any information you might have would be sincerely appreciated. Thanks!

From Faith Ann, 7/16/2007  11:26 PM

In the process of researching four, heavy, solid walnut, bentwood, captain's chairs that I rescued from a Winston-Salem, NC office that closed in 1990 after 50 years of operation, a reference Librarian named Katherine Arends found a small book in the Siler City Library in 2001 to help me with the company history. The book was called "Boling: The Story of a Company and Family" by John Harding (1979). According to this book the company started in 1901 as Siler City Bending Co. and made things like traces for carriage harnesses. On Jan 9, 1904, it became High Point Bending and Chair Company with founder Captain Malvola Jackson Boling. It was named High Point because of the heavy investment in the furniture industry from a nearby city of that name. In 1956 it became Boling Chair Company. In the year 2001 it was still in existance in Siler City and known as "Boling Group". Further research has led me to believe that the chairs I have are probably from 1926 --- celebrating their 80th (deleted)day. They are in excellent condition and continue to be well-loved and appreciated for their comfort and many years of service.

From John, 11/29/2006  2:20 PM

Boling chairs can occasionally be found on eBay. If you're wondering about the value just check eBay once in a while. Remember, something is worth what someone else will pay for it!

BTW, my mother's side of my family started The Boling Chair Company back around 1900. Later came High Point Bending & Chair Co. The family sold the business in the 90s after cheap foreign furniture, mostly from China, took away too much of the market. The new owners stopped and started a bit.

P.S. Over the holidays I'll be visiting my parents. I'll go through some old catalogs to try to find out info on some of the questions that have been posted here about specific chairs.

Hello, I have a pair of chairs that are black and hand painted with flowers. They have an original High Point Chair Bending Co paper label on the bottom. Does anyone have an age of these? Ant idea of what they are worth? Thanks for the help.

I have six Boling oak captains chairs I bought in 1975. one chair has a wooden peg missing that covers the metal reinforcement rod. Does anyone know where I could get one to replace the missing peg?

Thank you to C. Walls for this information! Almost 7 years ago, I rescued four bentwood, cane-backed chairs that were about to be tossed in a dumpster for our office -- they were a little knocked about, but were solid oak bentwood with cane backs, and betwood arms as well -- very nice chairs! They have served as my office "conference table" chairs ever since. I am glad to have a chance to know a little more about the origins of the company that made them.

I have an office chair made by the High Point Bending and Chair Company. It seems to be missing a fitting that would go inside the tube in the base that would hold the spindle tightly. Without the fitting, the chair wobbles when you sit in it. What would this fitting look like? Is there a source for these fittings? swjohnson75@comcast.net

After contacting the Chatham, North Carolina Historical Society I received the following information about the High Point Bending and Chair Company:

The High Point Bending and Chair Company operated from 1904-1956 when it became the Boling Chair Company, later just the Boling Company. That company is now out of business.

The company began in 1901 as the Siler City Bending Company. It made parts for house-drawn vehicles. An investor was M.J. Boling and in 1904 he rescued the failing company reorganizing it into the High Point Bending and Chair Company.

In addition to the chair-making plant in Siler City it built a plant in Mount Olive NC to make desks, tables and bookcases, mostly for office use. It was still operating in 1987 when the booklet from which I have taken this information was published and it continued to be owned and operated by the Boling family. I'm not sure when it closed.

We just bought a wonderful Captain's chair in white oak manufactured by the High Point Bending & Chair Co., Siler, N.C. in a thrift store in Fresno, Ca. We are curious to find out more about the company, also. The chair is in wonderful condition, and we would love to learn a little about the history of the chair and of the company. Thanks. Nancy and Steve

There is a listing a 19441 issue of FURNITURE WORLD Magazine, but all it says is, "High Point Bending & Chair Co., Siler City, NC. Bentwood Chairs. That is all I have. Perhaps another furninfo.com reader will know more. - Russell.
