Throwback Thursday: Child’s Rocker

This week may be children’s week, as I am posting a throwback to a child’s rocker as well.

The mother grew up with this rocker, but had made a new needlepoint for the seat.
She wanted the old needlepoint cleaned.
She did not want it repaired in any way, just cleaned so that it could be
put under glass as her grandmother had made it for her…
Wel worn = well-loved.  A new family tradition?

Among her provenance were ads from the Spokane Furniture Company where the chair was purchased, and the labels we found under the upholstery.

The chair ready for delivery and
another century of child use!
