A platform rocker is a chair mounted on a frame or platform, with short legs and castors.
The rocking chair itself was fitted with coiled springs to regulate the action when in use.
Skid rockers are not as common as platform rockers.Examining these elements individually, as well as furniture pieces in their entirety, will help you learn to correctly date them.Looking at the bottom or back of a piece, or inside its doors and drawers, can provide important clues about whether or not a piece of old furniture was machine cut or crafted by hand.The genuine rocking chair is usually somewhat wider than the standard dining chair, and the American spindle back rocker always has two horizontal splats below the vertical spindles.Some truly wonderful rocking chairs were made by Thonet and others in bentwood during the second half of the 19th century.
