An English brass and tubular steel rocking chair

Mid-19th century

This type of rocking chair has been produced for the first time by R.W. Winfield & Co., Birmingham. The model was shown at the Great Exhibition of 1851 at Crystal Palace in London. Its plain form countered the popular taste for overblown decoration.
