English Victorian Steel Bent Frame Upholstered Rocking Chair

Ref: CH2224
It is thought to have been designed by Peter Cooper (New York, 1793-1883) founder of the Canton Iron Works (Baltimore), and then produced by R. W. Winfield, who exhibited this form at the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London and the London International Exhibition of 1862. It's plain style was in stark contrast to the Victorian fashion for excess decoration.
