Bay Colony Antiques is proud to offer for sale this fantastic early 20th century antique Arts & Crafts Period Gustav Stickley Tiger Oak rocking chair. We’ve attached an image from Gustav Stickley’s 1909 catalog showing this chair, model #311 1/2, priced at $12.00 on the first product page. Commonly referred to as a V back, this chair was offered with either a rush seat or a hard leather seat. We often find these chairs redone with spring seats like this one because the rush and the leather wasn’t too durable or comfortable. The chair has a green leather seat with decorative brass tacks at the corners. The chair has a 5 slat back made from attractive cuts of Quarter Sawn Oak with vibrant rays present in the grain. The chair has shaped paddle arms and the rocker blades are original and free of damage. The chair is tenoned & pegged at every joint and is a wonderful early piece of Craftsman Furniture. The chair is in great condition with our only notes being the chair has been refinished, reupholstered, and there’s very minimal surface wear on the lower rail of the back. The chair measures 26” wide at the arms x 28 1/2” deep at the blades x 34” tall with a 16” seat height. The seat measures 20 1/2" wide (18" between arms) x 18" deep.
