Someone Ditched This Beautiful Antique Rocker!

Found this little beauty at Goodwill not a thing wrong with it except the ugly upholstery redo.The wood is so beautiful. I took it by my local antique dealer, she identified it as an 1890's Eastwood Platform Rocker. It was just so inexpensive I had to bring it home.I may have an as- is buyer, but if not Ill reupholster is in Victorian period fabric and sell her at a higher price.

    Actually the fabric isn't that far off from some of the Victorian fabrics. In fact it appears to me someone was actually trying to go for something 'original' looking. What's happened to the rocker since you posted about it? Now I'm curious ;-)
