Antique Platform Rocking Chair

Fred says: Attached are some photos of the platform rocker. It belonged to a great aunt of mine, who inherited it from other family members. Dimensions are 36″ height, 17″ width, 22″ depth.  Happy to send along additional info or photos if you need something specifically. Many thanks.

AW says: Fred your rocker is circa late 1800s. It’s an Eastlake/Victorian style chair, most likely made of Walnut. Sometimes these are referred to as “Carpet Rockers”.

This is because often a carpet was used for the seats and backs. The frames generally held up pretty well structurally.
