Antiques & The Arts


CHUMLEE: How are you doing? Good.
How are you? I’m good.
What do you have here? Some 1920s Paris Metro train
car seats, not from Paris– Paris down the street. [LAUGHS] Pretty cool. Yeah, that’s our
Paris down the street. Yeah, [LAUGHS] I’m coming to the
pawn shop today to hopefully sell
a 1920s Paris Metro train car seat that I have. I’ve had it for
about two years now. And I love unique antiques. But we’re remodeling. And at this point,
we could probably use a little extra money. So we thought, well, maybe
somebody else would enjoy them. Well, where did you get this? I picked it up at a
little antique shop. And I originally
thought they were San Francisco trolley car seats. But then just looking at
the back enameled panel, I found out they were actually
from Paris, from the ’20s. CHUMLEE: Yeah, these do look
like they’re from the 1920s. But the Paris Metro
had been around for a long time at that point. The underground transportations
had kind of a service around 1845, when
they first started talking about building them. And then in July 1900, the
first line was created. It was known as line 1,
and it still runs today. Oh, I didn’t know that. This looks like it would
have been from the second class because there was first class
and second class up until 1991. OK. CHUMLEE: And the
first class were nice, padded comfortable seats. And these don’t
look padded to me. More comfortable. [LAUGHS] CHUMLEE: Yeah, let me see. [MUSIC PLAYING] Yeah, I mean, they’re not bad. But if you had a long ride,
that’s kind of, like– it makes you sit– Good posture. Yeah, it makes
you sit very proper. Right. Let’s take a look
at the back over here. Yep, it has the
number II on it, which lets you know that this
was not the first class, it was second class. [LAUGHS] This is kind of the coolest
part about it, I think. I agree. It’s definitely got
some wear and tear. But it’s in pretty
good condition, overall, for as old as it is. So how much are you looking for? I like to get $2,499
for it, if I could. How about $700? That was a little lower
than I had hoped for. Any way you can go a
little bit higher on that? I could probably do $1,000. But it’s a specialized sale. And this could take a
long time to get rid of. Could you do
$1,300 by any chance? [SIGHS] How about $1,200? If you could just
do the $100 more, that would be great,
if there’s any room. CHUMLEE: You know what? I don’t see any point on
passing on it over $100. That sounds like a deal.
– Great. CHUMLEE: $1,300? Yes. Let’s write it up. TAMI: All right. I was really happy to
make the sale today. I didn’t get asking price that
I wanted for the train seats. But I really felt the $1,300
was a really fair price, and excited to have that,
and put it toward the home improvements and a trip
to see the grandkids.

  1. This is worthless..I saw something like this for 50bucks at an estate sale an then saw it a couple weeks later on the curb with a free sign

  2. She was not a good negotiator but not terrible either. Holding onto 1300 was a good decision. The pawn shoppers are always trying to squece a small amount in the end.

  3. Let me call my buddy he just graduated from college of seats, he know all about second class seats. And he is getting ready to do his PhD specialize in train seats. And he gained his knowledge from sitting on all Las Vegas seats.

  4. Hahahaha No way that he knew about this.he was briefed and scripted, he has to learn for one hour what the cousins of Donald Duck are called Huey, Dewey and Louie.
