Early Americana Rocking Chair

Status: Available Price: $495.00
What a fabulous early American rocking chair with diamond inlays on the top back rest and on the seat. I believe this piece was made during the first half of the 1800's, perhaps 1820 or 1830. Early wood-pegged construction as can be seen in the photos. I see no nails in the construction. There is a similar example at the Abby Aldrich Rockerfeller Folk Art Center at Colonial Williamsburg--I have pictured the front cover of the book from the museum and the picture of page 53 which shows the example from the museum collection. The biggest difference I can see is that the top portion of the back rest has 2 carved V-shaped slots in the museum collection chair, while the example here has 4 carved V-shaped slots. Beautifully made, with fine detailing including the two diamond inlays, early Americana is highly sought after by collectors. The size is 7 1/1" tall by 5" wide. Fabulous condition with great early patina.
