|Comment||Thank you so very much, Fred! I looked at dozens of images on the net and couldn't determine what style the rocker most resembled. I will be reading up on Boston and Salem rockers. I've got 3 lovely antique rockers but this older piece is by far the most comfortable. And thanks for the price info, too. I didn't lose money, grin! No, I won't be selling this rocker. Until I rescue another piece, it will remain my favorite chair. Thanks again, Fred!!|

I will attempt to answer questions about American antique furniture, including construction details, style, period, manufacturers, care, repair and storage. I do not have any background in appliances, musical instruments, sewing machines, trunks, lighting, clocks or children's and baby furniture and will not respond to questions about those items.
I ran an antique furniture restoration business for twenty years. I am a nationally syndicated columnist on the subject of antique furniture for such publications as Antique Week and New England Antiques Journal.
