Antique Furniture/Childs hoop back rocking chair



A few months ago I picked up this child's hoop back rocking chair.  Upon closer inspection, it seemed to be older than I originally thought. At first I thought maybe 1920's, but now I'm thinking before the turn of the century.  I wondered if you could tell me how old you think it is, what wood it is, and any thoughts on its value.  Thanks for your time.


PS I have more pictures if you want them.

Hi Bruce,

What you have is a rather poor reproduction of a Sackback Windsor Rocker.
It appears to be made of Maple with hickory turnings.  I place a value\
of $25. to $30. for it.

Best Wishes,
