Description

Charming antique rocker, probably made for a child. Rocker is 36" tall x 20" wide at the front x 30.5" long from front to back. This rocker is quite old and shows marks from normal usage on the wooden rockers. There is a small dent in the wood on the right side (facing) of the chair frame. Upholstery stuffing and cotton fabric is new. The front is slightly faded from the sun compared to the back. There are no identification marks anywhere on the rocker.

Provenance

I bought it at a flea market years ago.
