Question
Rocker
Rocker  
Hi.  This rocking chair was in my in-law's home.  We thought it had been made by a family member, but my 93 year old mom-in-law says no. Both her and her husband's families came over from Germany. I can't find an image resembling it on the Net. Wondering if you have any ideas about where it may have come from, or if there is a style that it belongs to?  Thanks.

Answer
it is a manufactured piece in oak.  the style is a mix of several.  made in the golden oak period around 1900.  probably in the grand rapids area.

congrats on your mom in law for being sharp and here.

very nice rocker, probaly sell retail in a shop at 400+
