North Wind Face Rocking Chair
The attention to detail in this hand carved chair back indicates the talent from a skilled craftsman and creative design from the artist. The "North Wind Face" was a popular furniture design found during the late 1800's into the early 1900's. This chair's striking red color comes from a water base mahogany dye stain which was applied into the birch wood used to construct this beautiful rocker.
This chair is the top notch! There are a few raw rubs on the wood but no major scratches or chips anywhere on the chair. It will be a easy touch up job for the buyer to put a little red stain into the raw areas however we did not want to do this ourselves as we wanted to leave this as original as possible.
**NOTE** We are going to be upholstering the chair! We will doing a few adjustments to the seat springs/cushions but we are leaving this chair as ORIGINAL as possible. We are simply going to straiten out the seat base and upholster the seat in a clean but simple fabric just for aesthetic purposes. If you the buyer have a preference of fabric we will be happy to re upholster the seat in YOUR choice of fabric. Nothing will be taken off the price for the un-upholstered rocker since it is a small amount of fabric/work to be done to balance out the seat base. The value comes from the antique chair itself.

Antique are not always perfect. They are often hand carved, hand milled and constructed with early building techniques. They are sometimes un-symmetrical and uneven or a little off balance. Some have damage from previous restorations which we will do our best to disguise without altering its originality. Scratches are very common on the legs of sofas and chairs. There is always at least one stiff sliding drawer on a dresser. We embrace the occasional slight timeworn imperfections. Some say it's a matter of perspective. We call it personality.
