Rocking Chair (USA), ca. 1900
The rustic furniture trade grew in the Catskill mountains because of access to an abundance of suitable natural materials. The work required only basic tools—saws, clippers, penknives, hammers, and measures. The dramatically curved profile of this chair shows the sophistication and skill of its maker while revealing the natural qualities of the wood.
