I have had this wonderful rocking chair since 1994. I bought it from this awesome furniture place called Stuckey's that used to be on Broad Street, here in Richmond. I have always been curious about its pedigree. I'm pretty sure it's a mutt but I still want to know what time period this is from and who was the manufacturer or designer. Perhaps there are other pieces, like a buffet or a dining room set.
Today I sent its image to Country Living magazine, which offers online and print appraisals of vintage finds for people. In the next few weeks, I hope to find some other places that offer similar services.
I did see a similar rocking chair years ago in an old issue of House and Garden magazine in the early 1990's. However, there was no information besides the fact that the homeowner had found it in a thrift store. Since then, I have seen nothing close.
By the way, I also sent CL a picture of my Amberina Hollywood Regency lamp hoping that they would have some additional information on that too.
