I would like to know the value of my rocker

Answer
Nancy - Your N&S rocker is a Salem style Windsor rocker decorated in Hitchcock style stencils and paint. A Windsor chair is a chair in which no vertical element runs continuously from top to bottom. All vertical elements terminate in the seat.

The rocker is made of birch with black factory paint. Here is a virtually identical N&S black Windsor that sold at auction for $45 in 2011.

It would sell today in the same range.
