Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,

My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.

Your bentwood rocking chair would have been produced in the early 20th century, circa 1920's. The Rocker, which appears to be maple, has reminence of a dark finish, which you can see has faded at the hand rests from use. In excellent condition the bentwood Windsor style rocker would have a current resale value of $150-$175. I do not see any damages to the piece from the photo, but if there are any structural issues with the blades or the legs, this would detract from the resale value.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.

Thank You,
