    The rocker is 32 tall, 28" wide and 28" deep. I have looked on the internet for chair identification and only found on item. This chair was called a strickly brandt empire throne parlor chair. If anyone can give me any information I would appreciate it. The lady I purchased it from knew only that it was old.

      I think you mean stickley brandt and that is a very well known brand so you should be able to find lots of examples online and elsewhere. I can't vouch for the accuracy of the info below but it purports to give gthe history of Stickleu & Brandt. I know Stickley is still in business.
      Charles Stickley and his cousin Schuyler Brandt formed the Stickley & Brandt Chair Company in 1891. They quickly became the largest furniture dealer in New York State, selling a wide variety of furniture including ornately carved fancy rockers that were popular at the time. For short periods, John George and Leopold Stickley worked for the company. In 1909, Stickley & Brandt began making Arts and Crafts pieces like those made by Charles' brothers. Stickley & Brandt went out of business in 1918.
