Formal walnut Victorian platform rocker. It has an open carved crest which features a brass rimmed round porcelain (probably Sevres) plaque in the middle. The frame of the chair has extensive incised carvings. It is very comfortable to sit in with a gentle rocking motion. The mechanism is different and more sophisticated than such rockers I have had in the past. The porcelain and general style make this a more formal and interesting rocker than others that I have had in the past!
Circa: 1875. Dimensions: 41″ H x 24″W. Condition: Old upholstery that has some minor wear but is still usable. The frame has a rich original patina and the porcelain is in good shape. The are some chips in the frame but it is structurally sound. Price: $1295
