We recently received this chair from an elderly aunt who has moved into a retirement home and we'd love to know more about it. It was purchased in Canada, either Edmonton or Vancouver.

It's in good shape but could use some tightening up and the seat definitely need work. The seat seems to be stuffed with sawdust and horsehair and there is at least one more fabric layer under the topmost one. I've been looking at lots of photos of rocking chairs and haven't found anything similar yet - any ideas?

    RE LeslieAnn; I posses a chair which looks though it is a member of the same family, It has
    curved square rungs under the arms, the seat has the same curve as have the legs, the back looks a little narrower but a little fancier. It was passed to my mother from a great aunt in the late thirties and passed to me in the late sixties. Origanally purchased probably in Markham Ont. My dad built a copy in the sixties but with no rockers, my sister has it in Ontario.
