This Schram Coil Spring Rocker belonged to Mary Esther Brierly, Anderson 1858-1933 of Elkhorn, Walworth, WI. She bought it brand new about 1900 and it has been handed down in the family to us. We never knew anything about the chair until last night I was on line and ran across this site. Someone had a chair simular and wanted to find out who make it and all the information just fell into place. Thank you Collectors Weekley for your site. It really helps people like my husband and I get together with others to find out about our family heirlooms.
We brought this chair to CA, after my husbands father died in 1997. This was his favoret chair for watching TV. It is now our favoret chair. I believe it has been reapolstered at least once by my husband mother. One of the springs broke and we found a place called EZ Springs, 231 W. 11th St. National City, CA 619-336-1307. The cost was $450.oo per spring. But it was well worth it. It should last another 100 years. We are so thrilled to find this site and be about to connect with others. All of us together have solved a Mystery.
