Child Rocking Chair
United States of America

Acquired from

For sale

18 1/2 in tall at the backrest, 9 1/2 in seat height, widest point on armrest is 15 and 3/4 inches. I thought this was something that someone handmade for their child. it's got several repairs to it. old paint or stain that is mostly gone. its put together with nails on the rocking pieces. it's made of wood and I'm guessing Walnut or pine. it's got some cracks and damages I'll try to send you as many pictures as the site will allow. This just looks so old to me I'm hoping that it's valuable and belongs in a museum. other than the nails that attach to the bottom rocking pieces to the legs, I can only find one other nail which appears to have been done as a repair on the backrest next to a crack
