I received this from my great-aunt over 30 years ago. My husband and I have always joked that it is the "original Lazy Boy". We would really like to know its age and possibly its maker.

    Hi, I have just posted about a Larkin Chautequa Rocker Recliner #45. Much of my information has been through
    Take a look at this website. Yours is very similar to the Chautauqua Rocker & Reclining Chair #550 made by Larkin Soap Company

    Hi Lindad,
    Thanks for the suggestion about scarborough marsh furniture! My Rocker & recliner is a Larkin... I have uncovered the original fabric and was thrilled to definitely identify it. I have already email Scarborough Marsh Furniture about making the footstool that mine is missing. The footstool in the 550 appears to be almost identical to yours. I was wondering if you would be willing to take measurements and photos (or make a pattern) so that I might be able to have one made? Please email me at Thanks, Cindy

    HI again,
    My Larkin is a #45 and has a little more ornate footstool, but I am assuming that size wise it is still similar.

    I was told today by a lady that inherited one just like this that her grandmother said this chair was given as a gift to those who purchased a certain amount of there soap and that the cost then of the chair was $5. so this chair was made a looooonnnggg time ago. the value of it is what I would love to know!
