In 1915 or so my maternal grandfather gave this rocker to my maternal grandmother as a gift for their first wedding anniversary. For fifty plus years it lived as an onxy-colored piece of furniture. Then, during the late 60's, it became a red head.
I've always loved this rocker as a study base. Its wide seat always allowed ample room for me to sit cross-legged with a book or books propped up. During my one and only crafting adventure, the chair proved wide enough to hold a hook rug project. And then, when I gave birth to my last baby, the chair became mine. With its broad seat and sturdy arms, the chair was perfect for rocking and nursing the baby.
I would like to return the chair to a natural finish, but I surely hate getting starting on those types of projects.
