Classic Ercol Grandfather Rocking Chair in Beech & Elm
The ultimate, indulgent rocking chair, Ercol’s ‘Grandfather’ rocker is a design classic! With a large back, low seat and wide arms, you won’t move for hours once you’ve settled in. As you would expect from Ercol, it’s an expertly constructed piece with many of their signature features from the exaggerated beech bentwood back, to the striking spindles to the gently curved arms to the comfort and functionality. A must for every Ercol fanatic wanting to expand their collection but as is the way with timeless design, it would look at home in a mixed-style interior too, from midcentury influenced to traditional country cottage.
This is an original, vintage rocking chair that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in excellent, used condition. We have given the wooden chair frame a clean and applied a natural beeswax polish but have otherwise left the original finish well alone – it’s in excellent order and is classified as ‘Golden Dawn’. The chair comes with its two original, official Ercol cushions. These are secured in place with straps and poppers. As you can see, sadly the floral fabric has worn through, particularly on the seat but the cushions will be useful as templates if you plan to replace or recover. If you plan to not have cushions or fixed cushion pads, the poppers can be easily unscrewed. As you would expect from Ercol, it’s superbly constructed in solid elm and beech. The gold circular Ercol sticker can be found under the seat. Please browse our photos for an accurate sense of the condition of these chairs.
