Art Nouveau Bent Sandalwood Rocker


An incredible and unusual Art Nouveau bent sandalwood rocker. A beautifully-built, elegant and highly-unexpected construction, two 3' bentwood rings flank and support an unusually deep seat with concave back. Carved wood buttons at the seat and backside indicate this likely had a custom cushion making the form fully functional. Wonderful patina from age, great from all angles. Though gently restored and still rigid, the piece sits now more as an incredible, anonymous, turn-of-the-century rarity; extraordinarily evocative utilitarian sculpture.
