  2. Manufactured by C.A. Buffington & Co., Berkshire, New York. I think they were used as extra seats in cars like Packard, Pierce-Arrow, Willys-Knight, Cadillac, etc.

  5. Calvin A. Buffington was my great grandfather. He designed and patented the first folding chair. His company manufactured them for the Model T Ford, to fit easily and be used for picnics. His company was in Berkshire, NY.

  6. I've had one of these chairs for about 5yrs. & now I'd like to sell it but don't know what to ask. I know one sold on e-bay for $75.00 but they are fairly rare and in several large museums. Does anyone know what a fair price would be? I'll keep mine if there is no longer a market.
