The Laundry List of Details...
This charming children's rocking chair, made in the 1940's by the Oak Hill Co. of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, has a music box on the bottom that plays "Rock-a-Bye-Baby" as the chair moves to-and-fro. This chair is in very good working condition, but bears signs of wear. There are scuffs on the seat and rails. The finish is black trimmed with gold and is distressed as would be expected after many decades. The worn finish on the arm rails, in particular, indicates that this little rocker must have been very well loved. (Please see photos.) The top rail features in-tact decal images of a young boy and girl reading books beneath a fruit tree and blue birds nestled in fruit tree branches. Though the cover is oxidized, the music box still plays beautifully. The Oak Hill Co. logo, featuring the name and location of the company and a leafy green tree, is displayed on the back of the top rail. I like the way this chair carries it's history, so I chose not to refinish it. I gave it a thorough cleaning and polish top to bottom. Additional photos available upon request.
