Exceptional Antique American 19th Century Walnut Rocking Chair

-- caned seat & back


LOCAL PICK UP ONLY (but we can refer you to moving companies and to packers/shippers such as the UPS Store and FED EX)

This beautiful 19th century American rocking chair has been a centerpiece of our collection.  It is in very good used / antique / vintage condition.  We have used it just as it was when we bought it (we have never even used oil on it to cover old scratches and marks).  It looks like work / repairs / restoration have been done over many years.  The hand caned seat and back are certainly replacements done many years ago – at some point when the frame received attention.  


The frame appears to be walnut and there is a burl walnut decorative panel at the top.  There is also incised decoration on several parts of the chair --- including at the top and bottom of the chair back.  The two front legs and the front horizontal spindle are nicely turned. The wood rocking chair frame has a nice patina from age and use.


Approximate Dimensions:


Height at back                   over 33”

Width of seat                             19”

Depth of seat                            17 ¾”

Depth at runners                       27 ½”


This attractive antique ladies rocker is ready to serve as a genuine 19th century accent piece in your decor.  It can be used to stage and display anything from pillows to dolls and stuffed animals --- and it can also be used as a functional rocking chair!
