A bentwood rocking chair by Simeon Barker, 1889

An absolutely beautiful and very rare, adult-sized bentwood rocking chair.

This superb piece bears a maker’s label and date underneath:

November 1st 1889

Simeon Barker

Cabinet maker and upholsterer

Gibbet Hill and Hall Street Halifax

It’s absolutely lovely to have this added provenance. We cannot find another chair like this in anything larger than doll size.

This rare, stylish and remarkably contemporary chair would look beautiful in any settling. Do not let it slip by.
