Craig Gilborn wrote a wonderful reference book on this type of rocker. "Adirondack Furniture and the Rustic Tradition". In the book you will find a chair that looks to have all the construction and unique design details of this early rocker. They say 1910 Hickory and ash rocker of the type found in the early Blue Mt Lake camps. The example pictured here is a bit more elaborate then the examples found in the book. But there is every indication it was built by the same craftsman. They say it may be Amish and can be as early as 1880s. The finish is rustic and the design has an Arts & Crafts feel to it. I'm over 200 lbs and can sit in it. They are not only a chair but a Classic piece of American art.
