Child' rocking chair. This chair is in excellent condition. It is very nicely turned. The scribe marks are intact and there is just a little red wash remaining on the back. Also, there is a date of "11-73" and "36" so I have a feeling the rockers were replaced then and it was probably stripped at the same time. Nonetheless, it is mostly maple with oak rockers. The seat is in very good condition but probably a replacement. I would think it's Ca. 1820-1840. 22 3/4" H X 12 1/2" W X 11" D. Seat: 12" W X 11" D. Rockers are 23" L. Sweet.
Maple chest on chest with pine secondary. Dovetailed throughout. Top retains original brasses; appropriate brasses on the base. The proportions are excellent. When I purchased it, there was no finish, thus the present shellac finish. This chest probably originated in Massachusetts or New Hampshire. Circa 1780-1800. 42" wide X 20" deep X 72" high.
