Description

This antique rocking chair, known as an American rocker, dates from the early 1920’s. It has been completely refurbished and re-upholstered in a textured indigo blue velvet.

It features the original spring loaded rocking mechanism and castors all in good working order. The woodwork has been carefully cleaned and restored using my Dad’s secret recipe (he was a French polisher). I love the contrast between the indigo blue fabric and the dark honey coloured woodwork.

I love to blend my traditional upholstery skills with textile art and I have added the unique appliqued/embroidered design of two hares gazing up a full moon, around which are embroidered the words ‘Love You to the Moon and Back’.

To the seat area are beautifully machine embroidered cow parsley flowers, shimmering in the moon light.

This is not just any old rocking chair, this is now a piece of Art! An utterly unique and never to be repeated design. Perfect for the nursery or bedroom.

Please note that this is an antique piece of furniture, there are a couple of marks and dings to the frame.
