Manufactured by General Fireproofing as chair #4419 and found on a few of the great trains of the '30s & '40s, these are probably best known as the smoking and compartment chairs on the SP's Daylight.

I have 4 of these great deco aluminum chairs in good but unrestored condition. Mostly upholstered in (unmatching) vinyl or cloth, they retain their brushed satin aluminum finish, though the anodizing is worn or dirty in spots.

Very rare, when these chairs can be found, it's often on expensive sites like 1stdibs, where they go for almost $2K a piece: https://www.1stdibs.com/furniture/seating/armchairs/pair-of-extreme-machine-age-goodform-brushed-aluminum-leather-armchairs/id-f_4998273/

$800 each.
