I have found an antiu, I have found an antique hand made
I have found an antique hand made Boston nurse rocker that is in good physical shape. It has all the signs of being hand made on the underside. It is not signed. The seat is caned, but needs to be redone. There is black paint residue on the turnings and open grains but there is no decoation. It may have been striped. The seat is made up of sections, it is not solid. I think that puts it about 1850, because earlier chairs had solid seats. My question has to do with value. I dont't see many small Boston rockers with caned seats, armless online. Does this make it more valuable? Is it worth very mkuch in its current state, or should I clean and wax it. … read more
