Victorian Walnut Sewing Rocker with Cane Seat and Back

Product #CH005

This is a very early Victorian Walnut sewing rocking chair that came from the Cedar Rapids, Iowa area. The earliest history is that it belonged to Era Adair Houlton, born 1852, died 1910. Her father was a 49er in California, and then had the Houlton Grain Co. in Denver. This is an early antique rocker that I am sure was used for endless hours of sewing. Notice the early and unique pegged structure used throughout on this early piece. The caning on this rocker is the hole cane process which allows for a strong seat and back. This rocker measures 33″ high, the rockers are approximately 29″ long. The seat is 17″ deep and 17″ wide where one sits, and across the widest point is 21″ wide on the seat. This is a remarkable early piece of Victorian furniture and how exciting to know some of the history of this sewing rocker!
