Below are some photos of a pair of rare screen used Star Trek: The Original Series U.S.S. Enterprise Bridge Chairs to be auctioned as Lots 621 and 622 in Profiles In History's upcoming "Drama, Action, Romance: The Hollywood Auction" on December 16, 2012. These rare and iconic set fixtures that appeared in every episode of TOS were created by the Desilu prop department using mass produced Burke model 115 fiberglass shell patio chairs - manufactured by the now defunct Burke, Inc. furniture company of Dallas, Texas - and modifying the design with a black vinyl padded Starfleet back rest extension. The pre-auction bid estimates for these outstanding pieces of Star Trek history are $15,000 - $20,000 per lot.
