This is a great antique child’s “pouting” chair. It’s solidly made, with a built-in rocker, and is very primitive looking. It would fit in well with a farmhouse motif.
According to one internet source, “pouting chairs” were originally built by German immigrants who settled in Pennsylvania during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. I found a similar chair – not a rocker – on-line for over $300!
This appears to be handmade.
Condition: It’s in excellent condition, although it could use a bit of sanding in some rough areas such as inside the handle grips on the arms.
Dimensions: 13″ wide x 19″ deep (to the back of the rocker) x 28″ high. It’s 11 3/4″ to the seat surface and the seat itself is 10″ deep.
Price: $45.00. Plus the 5.5% required Maine State Sales Tax of $2.48 for a total of $47.48.
