Breathtaking as well as most elegant rocking chair: Fine quality of bentwood manufacturing (black stained.) beech wood/black stained/handwork of finest quality/refurbished by hand This rocking chair has a support for feet as well as a backrest which are adjustable. The 'egg' chair is of very elegant rare shape (elliptic form type, made of bentwood / seat and backrest are made of original wickerwork.)
