Question
Phoenix Chair Co1
Phoenix Chair Co1  

Phoenix Chair Co 2
Phoenix Chair Co 2  
I purchased this Phoenix Chair Co rocking chair that is very unique and has a leather/vinyl seat. I would like to learn more about it. What I've researched online so far hasn't told me much. Additionally the Nomber is not provided on the bottom of the chair with the "Phoenix Chair Co" sticker.
Anything you can provide would be helpful. (wood type, year, possibly value, and perhaps purpose... for instance is this a childerens chair or a misses chair? I'm very interested in the history)

Sincerely,
Kristy
