These rocking chairs invariably appear as agate-ware, but this slip decorated example dated 1843 is a lot nicer. And being 8″ tall is a lovely size as well – but what is most pleasing about it is it’s fabulous untouched condition.
Like cradles, rocking chairs were produced to commemorate ‘happy events’. Our model has a pierced seat and a pierced heart to it’s back. It’s rudimentary slip-decoration of dots and squiggles is very similar to a cradle Known to have come from a pottery at Willenhall near Walsall though the nearby Staffordshire potteries are a more likely place of origin for our piece.
Condition: Completely untouched and original
