Vintage Ercol ‘Grandfather’ Model 315 Rocking Chair in Beech & Elm

The ultimate, indulgent rocking chair, Ercol’s model 315 ‘Grandfather’ rocker is a design classic, dating from the 1960s. With a large back, low seat and wide arms, you won’t move for hours once you’ve settled in. It has generous, over-sized proportions for gentle, enveloping relaxation. 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 good, used condition. We have checked and cleaned the chair, applying a natural beeswax polish but have otherwise left the original finish alone. There are marks, scuffs and scratches to the wood / finish which are to be expected with a vintage, used piece of this age, but as you can appreciate from our photos, they are pretty minimal, especially in the context of the overall piece. We have accurately represented the chair in our photos. The chair has the original poppers in place at the back and under the seat, should you choose to add Ercol cushions at some point. 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. Sadly the blue Ercol sticker is no longer affixed but it dates from the 1970s and is a model of theirs that’s increasingly hard to acquire in such good order, even with a few knocks!
