Hi thank you for the information This is a Basket-weave Variety 3 -Seat Glider. There is no way of knowing who manufactured the glider without a marking on the piece. There were several companies that produced them. It looks to be a Bunting Glider however it would say Bunting Glider Co on the bottom of the angle iron or the bottom portion of the seat. If it glides smoothly the value is 450-500.00 in today's market as is. The piece looks to be in great shape.

is the bottom mechanism matching on this glider? I don't know what it is but it is definetly not a bunting glider the weave pattern is not even close to their dimensional weave pattern. so far i am extremely unimpressed with your answer. You didn't even read my question and respond to it.

The piece is not in great shape the metal is ripped in 2 spots and there is a screw through the metal on the front where it doesnt even belong. But really that is immaterial i didn't ask you if it was in great shape or what it was worth at all.

Hello I will opt out and let the question open to other appraisers to see if they can help you. You stated it has no markings and there is no way to say who made this glider with certainty. This is considered to be in very good to great shape even with the imperfections and the fact that it is a working glider. The pattern is a basket weave 3 seat glider and that is not a pattern only to Bunting. I will opt out and another appraiser will help you if known.
