Description

"That’s a chair, very old chair, probably around the 1890s. It’s a beautiful piece, it’s a gliding chair, well it’s not a true, it’s not a gliding chair, it works from the same principle as a buckboard. It has two big springs on either side of the chair underneath, that are on a curved piece of wood and when you rock the swing, when you rock it glides on those springs and has wooden wheels...beautiful piece."
