    A few years ago my former co worker was driving down a street and came across this wood rocker, I'm looking for any info on it, possible age, any info is appreciated. Thanks.

    Sorry image quality is bad i have to take a picture of a picture.

    And it was "Garbage picked"? Or did it come out of the house and jump in his car like a poorly distreated pet? :)

    Mid-19th century or so rocking chair made in New England referred to as a Boston Rocker. Yours has had original paint stripped and worn off, so condition poor and value low. Similar described in more detail in this thread:

    Lots of more modern reproductions of these, so hard to say 19th century from just these inadequate pics.

    Sorry, have to disagree. Did you notice the shape of the seat? That wasn’t done on any later reproduction I’ve ever seen - too much material and too expensive.
