Yes, I found another chair similar to my beloved rocking chair and this time I got to see it in person! I was amazed how happy it made me to see that the mechanism was almost identical, except for the fact that with this one you had a choice with how far you could recline by replacing that brass bar. I wonder if that is the original bar (there are no other brass accents) or if it is a substitute? However, the tag for this chair said it was a Morris; a name I've heard before in my research and, therefore, why I think this is much older than mine. Unfortunately, no date was attributed to it.
Oh and also, this one was going for $275 and I got my mine for a sweet, sweet $25.
