I know this chair is very old but I would like to know the year built, style and market value. The upholstery obviously is new.
thank you!!

chair was made around 1880.  It is a mix of style, eclectic, has touches of Hunzinger style and victorian style.   wood looks to be oak which is to be expected.

very nice rocker which i would price in my shop at 375 minimum. In a fancy shop, waxed, and recovered in period fabric, 650.

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.
