Chairs Rocking chairs Seating (Furniture)
A wood framed rocking chair in the glider style. This chair was brought from Spain by Pedro Echevarria, the brother of Louie Echevarria, before 1900. The wood on the chair is oak except for a repaired section of the left side rail, which is clear-grained fir. This replacement part mimics the general shape of its counterpart on the right side, but it is higher, more square, and it does not have the style or quality of grooves along the top.
