I have what I believe is one of the originals. I was a kid when my parents purchased it in 1957 or 1958. I was with them when they ordered it at a furniture store in New Jersey. I just checked on a recent auction price and found that it may be worth a couple of thousand dollars. WOW! Ours has minimal cat damage since it's been folded and standing in a corner for years. My wife and I have named it "Chuck" because, although it's comfortabe to sit in, at our age, when we try to stand up from it, it chucks us onto the floor. I just looked for a label, but all thats left is the spot of glue.
