Hi Cathy,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. The crack in the arm could affect the value - it depends on how significant it is and where it is. So that I may best assist you, can you please take a photograph or two of it and upload it?

Thanks very much, Cathy, for the photographs of the damage to the arm. Because it doesn't structurally affect the chair but is more of a visual impairment, the detriment to the value is minimized.
If you'd like this appraisal to include dimensions, please send me the height, width across arms and depth of the rockers (in inches) at your convenience.
Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An English style maple ladderback rocking armchair
late 19th/early 20th Century
with four shaped ladders, flat cabriole profile arms raised on baluster-turned supports, over a sprung trapezoidal slip seat, over inverted tulip-form feet, on rockers
PROVENANCE: inherited
CONDITION: spliced break and repair to proper right arm adjacent to stile; does not affect structural integrity of the chair
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
