I bought a rocking chair from a garage sale in California

Customer Question

I bought a rocking chair from a garage sale in California during the 60's. It looked old then. Unfortunatly, with it being during the sixties and me being at the "peak" of my artistic stage, I took the chair apart and ruined any valve it may have had. But I am still interested in when it was made and what style it is. I have finally removed the several coats of paint that were changed over the years and am refinishing it back to the orginal look (minus the horsehair and coil springs). The chair is going to my eldest granddaughter in time for the birth of her twins. Can you help?

Or you may use this method:.Go to www.imgur.com.click on Computer.Select the picture file from the box that pops up..Hit open..Click on Start Upload.And then copy the link they give you (it will look similar to this http://www.imgur.com/xxxx) and paste it here..Or:Send them like this: In an Email! This can take awhile depending on how busy they are at Just answer, they do forward them to me. .Send the picture to ,***@******.***, in the subject line put " Pictures for Glenda B in Antiques"..In the body of the message put , your user name and name..Make sure to send these from the same address that you registered with just answer with , so they know who you are.

Sometimes it can take over 24hrs, depending on how busy the site is. We the appraisers are not employees of the Just Answer site, we come to the site to answer questions, we do not work there. They get photos in from customers, they then send them to the correct departments ( categories, ) then they are forwarded to the appraisers. I have no control over how fast all of this happens. I will let you know as soon as they send them to me..Glenda
