I am trying to figure out age and value and possibly maker of this chair. It is a rocker, glider , swivel chair. Heavy wood. About 32" wide back and about 24" wide seat. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.

Answer
too many manufacturers making this early American style in teh 1930-50 era to determine which one made it without a label.

most were maple in this style.

retail in a store in good clean condition and complete about 125$.  should have a pad on the seat and many came with a back cushion, not a thick one about a 2 inch one.

Expertise

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. robertsantiques@cox.net 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.
