      I wonder how you came to the conclusion this is a child's chair? You didn't provide any dimensions but I suspect you are judging by the height of the seat from the floor as opposed to overall dimensions. Seat height is an item to think about but so is the seat width, arm length, back height. It is a nice example of a vintage chair but I don't think it is a child's chair. Looking at the floor tiles as a guide caused me to wonder about the dimensions. It has seen some repairs but the single spreader and angle of the rockers front to rear is a help in researching it.

      Sorry for the delay I know nothing about antique chairs or rockers okay from the floor to the top of the back of the chair it's 28 inches from seat to the top of the back is 17 inches the handrail is 10 1/2 inches long this seat is 13 inches long and 13 1/2 inches wide the rocker legs are 23 1/2 inches I hope this is helpful and any advice you can give me would be wonderful I'm thinking about selling it but I don't know anything about this I don't know what to do thank you

      Your dimensions are good but I still doubt this being a child's chair. When I was young it was seldom a child would even be allowed to sit in this chair. Everyone said we tried to go to fast and we would ruin it. The chair as I know the style had three uses. The lady of the house sat in it to sew quilts. she sat in it when using the spinning wheel and she sat in it when breast feeding the baby. Keep in mind I am talking before cribs when babies were in a cradle. I don't think I would call it an antique but I would suggest it is more than worthy of research regarding origin and value. I thought I could trace it quickly to the Chicago area factories but haven't had good luck as yet.

      It is a Gothic style rocker. Stomps Burkhart co. was known for this design, they closed in 1928
