Hello! I just purchased a platform rocker and am trying to get more information on it. Can you tell me what era it is from, what kind of wood it is, and what the possible value of it is as well as any other pertinent information you can provide? I can send you more photos if necessary.

Thanks so much!

Hi Karen,

Your Victorian Platform Rocker dates to the 1880's and appears to be crafted
out of Walnut. I feel the value range is $350. to $425.
Victorian furniture values are soft at the present time so you will need
to negotiate a selling price.

Best Wishes,
