Rocking chair antique-- pls help identify
I (obviously) know nothing about antiques-- but I do know I don't want to ruin this sweet chair.
This rocking chair is obviously in bad shape--extremely bad shape. I want to reupholster it. First though I want to make sure I'm not destroying something that needs to be properly restored, by someone other than me.
Can anyone tell me if this chair is unique or may I just go ahead and carefully reupholster and restain?
I am guessing it is from the mid 1800's.....
It has a unique hourglass shape . The closest thing I saw on the internet was Lincoln's favorite rocking chair.
Any info would be very appreciated!
