This is a lovely vintage lyre back in great condition – no rips or tears, almost no dings – except it was sat on by someone too large for the chair and as you can see, under the seat has begun to give way. It might not have except for age and probably drying out. I used it as an accent piece and place to drop my bags at the office. As with so many pieces of furniture I brought home when I closed my office suite, there’s just no room for it here.
Firm Price: $25.00
FCFS. Sorry, no holds without payment in advance via PayPal (see below for purchase options). We don’t use any other cash or money app.

Local Pick Up Available:
Auburn. This item is located at a private home in Auburn, and can be seen there by appointment, which ordinarily would be on weekends only. For those who prefer, you can find this item on Facebook’s Marketplace here: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/315080053413718 or you can send an email to Linda at HeritageCollectiblesMaine@gmail.com
Payment Through This Website: This site supposedly offers the option of paying directly but there’s some kind of weird glitch and payment info for every new item posted somehow auto-populates to every previous item. Since that’s obviously wrong, I’ve had to eliminate that option on most items. My apologies! Please connect with me via firstname.lastname@example.org for purchase info. Because my primary business is non-stop and demanding, I probably won’t get back to you until early morning or late evening. (More apologies!)

Cabot Mill is open Sunday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. I don’t have good photos of the inventory at Cabot Mill as the display cabinet is all glass and I end up getting so much glare, it’s hard to see what’s available!

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby. Johnny was an avid reader, who loved the feel of real books in his hands… history was his forte, but in true Renaissance Man fashion, John knew a lot about a great many subjects. He would often be so fascinated by a book he was reading that he would excitedly read aloud passages to me, so we could discuss the ideas contained therein.
He loved me like crazy, and oh how I loved him.
Follow our blog at https://warrior-project.org, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.
All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps will go to help fund The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed, although it has been in hiatus during the pandemic. I’m hoping to begin working on this again during the spring of 2022.
(Please Note: The Grief Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 2001. Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
