armless rocker

I have a very old armless rocker with an embroidered cushion seat. I want to sell it but have no idea what its value would be. How can I find that out? I've done searches on the internet but don't know what it's called. I've seen some of your posts about sewing rockers but I don't know if this would qualify. It's very small, dark wood, with a wooden back. There appears to have once been a piece of wood in the center of a frame in the middle of the chair back, but it was gone when I got the chair. I have seen some photos on your site but don't know how to upload mine.

Two things. We don't do appraisals here....but we can guess.
Second, it's impossible to tell anything without a picture.

RE: armless rocker

Look for "nursing rocking chairs" or something similar on Google or another search engine and you might find a chair similar to yours. I inherited two caned nursing rockers that were used by my great grandmother to nurse her children and then passed down thru the family. By the way, I'm almost 60.
