Victorian wooden upholstered spring doll rocking chair
United States of America

Acquired from

For sale

This is a wooden doll rocking chair with upholstered seat, back, and arms. It’s long like a sewing chair. But for a doll. It’s a spring secured with screws that makes it rock. It’s in amazing condition besides one spot on the upholstery. The upholstery has studs to keep it in place. The uphold is cream and a mint green color rose pattern. It is 13.75” tall from top to ground. The base is 9.75” long. Measuring the side of the base. The front of the base measures 6.5”. There is a stamp on the inside of bass. It is a sun. (Circle wi the lines around it) With the letter D inside. The number 4_0. Can’t read middle number. The name is hard to read but I believe it says “DODGSON FURN MFG SACRAMENTO”!


Bought from an estate sale. Most of everything was from the 1900s to the 60s. I purchased this with a 1900s wicker baby bassinet. So I believe it would be from the same era. Not sure though.
