Question
antique platform rocker
antique platform rocke  
Hello,

I found this old rocker at a rummage sale today and fell in love with it.  Can you tell me anything about it?  I was wondering, age, value etc.  

Thank you so much.

Answer
Ken,

Looks like a nice example of a Victorian period platform rocker.  Generally these pieces range from 1890 through 1920, but this one looks to be closer to 1900 - 1905 to me.  It has been nicely reupholstered which enhances the value and if there are no breaks in the wood, I would estimate the value to be in the $275 - $300 range for the right buyer.

Hope this helps.
