I found this nursing chair at a garage sale for $60 and was hoping you could tell me more about it.  I have looked all over and could not find any maker's mark.  The rocker mechanism did have this: PAT'JAN.3 97.  I would like to know what you can tell me about it, what it is worth, and the best way to care for it and keep it good shape.  Thanks!

Hi Kathy,

You rocker was made around 1900 and is made of Oak.  It is next to impossible to
come up with the original manufacturer since there were numerous furniture companies
making examples like this. It has a value of about $150. to $200. to the right person
who can live with the style, but in todays's world, I do not se too many buyers with

Good Luck,
