    Pressback American Oak.
    Early 1900s.

    You can get replacement leatherette seats from woodworking catalogs.

    Someone may have a link.

    Would you consider replacing the seat with a very contemporary pattern and fabric? Would look very cool and artistic to find an antique rocking chair with a seat covered in Versace pattern.

    If doing for yourself. If doing for resale, would stick with a traditional seat.

    Hi everyone, sorry late reply i kept forgetting to come back. Yeah the sole purpose of me acquiring this chair was to re sell it to someone thats looking to fix it up. but i do think it should be done with a traditional seat original to the chair.

    that is really neat so its a "Pressback American Oak. Early 1900s." that soooo cool!!!! so i am having trouble trying to find a replacement seat that you guys are talking about, can someone link me to one? this seat cover did come with it, i think someone was going to fix it up and gave up lol 64956025_820147211703734_1665841059034300416_n.jpg 65092952_820150821703373_3551430262887809024_n.jpg
