This was a freebie at the curb! It is missing the four back slats and the bottom rail into which they are placed. My main concerns are in knowing what type of a seat this rocker originally had, if it had a back cushion and the time period in which it was manufactured. Thank you!
Answer mission rocker. From theQuaint series of Arts & Crafts/Mission style furniture made by Stickley Brothers 1902-1915.
seat would have been a cushion within a frame, more like an open box about 4-5 inch tall frame or box within which there would have been springs with the fabric and padding covering that frame which all sat in the hole. the frame would not show but would have been covered and sat down inside the seat rails. would have had inner springs. no cushion in the back oak slats only.
hope this helps
