What year

I was told it was from the 30's, my dad and my uncle who is 80 said they both got their hair cut in this chair. Would like to hear what year you think it is. I always thought old barber chairs were cool so my dad said let me call the old barber from his home town in WV and see if he still had the chairs from his barber shop and would sell them. The guy agreed and sold him the chair and the pole. He had one more chair that matched this one that was his wifes but he didn't want to let it go for sentimental reasons.

I had layers of pain stripped off of it and nickel plated, even left the old horse hair in the cushions
