Customer Question
I have a rocking...

I have a rocking chair I purchased in an antique store, on the bottom is a tag F>H> Conant’s Sons, No 736, Camden, NY. It has a picture on the inside back of the chair, I was trying to find out anything about it

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I am just curious about the chair, when I purchase antiques it is because I intend to use them, I had a small space, I fell in love with the chair when I saw it. My cousin suggested I look on the bottom for anything, I just found the tag
