Wonderful Antique Child’s “Pouting” Chair / Rocker


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.  

Shipping & Delivery:
  Free local pickup.  We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $15.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $15.00.  Shipping via USPS would be $25.00.
