    I found this beautiful old rocking chair at a thrift store today - I immediately thought mid century modern Danish rocker; I've hit a home run!!

    BUT, while looking it over to photograph I found a small round sticker that says Made in Yugoslavia?

    I'm thinking/hoping it got stuck on there by accident? And maybe I should just take it off & throw it away?

    PS - The chair is almost definitely mid century; looking it over as I said above, I found some screws - and they are the old school slot screws.

    So what do I have? Is it a Danish mid century modern rocking chair in excellent condition?

    Also - Look at how the bottom springs/cords sit nicely in a recessed space that hold them in place - that's a cool touch, right? A Danish touch?? lol
    Thank you for any help - as always!

    Here's a couple of pics taken inside; the colors pop without the sun shining so brightly on it!

    It's pretty much of an international style.

    I agree, a more general MCM, not Danish design.
    Yugoslavia was important in low cost furniture manufacture at the time. I believe they copied UK designs or worked for UK companies. @Ownedbybear ?

    Much furniture was indeed imported here from Yugoslavia, and still is. Lots of high quality timber: elm, beech and ash. Some got commissioned, some was from state factories.

    That might well be Yugoslav, it was very nice quality and not always cheap either.

    There were many "Danish style" pieces produced in Yugoslavia back in the 60's/70's. The quality is not on par with actual Danish furniture and they sell for much less, as you'd expect. That doesn't keep people from trying to get high prices for them. This pair is currently on Ebay for the bargain price of $2500. On a good day, with cushions, these should sell in the $200-$300 range ebay1.jpg .
