Child\'s Rocking Chair
Child's Rocking Chair  
I have a child's rocking chair with long rockers and I was wondering what the value was, who made it, and the time period?
There is no maker's mark on the the chair that I noticed.
Thanks for your help.

there were 5000 manufacturers in operation in the 1915-20s when this brace back rocker was made so determining which manufacturer made it is not possible without a label.

after waxing with toluene free Briwax in an antique mahogany color this would retail in a shop at 175-200 if it is tight.

this is a bedroom rocker or parlor rocker.

The wood was often birch stained dark mahogany.

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.


I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
