Original Ercol ‘Grandfather’ Rocking Chair in Dark Wood Finish
Ercol’s large, ‘Grandfather’ rocking chair is a design classic, dating from the 1960s. Characterised by its large, fanned back, low seat and wide arms, it’s generous, over-sized proportions will provide gentle rocking relaxation. As you would expect, it’s superbly well-made, with traditional craftsmanship and with many of Ercol’s signature features from the exaggerated beech bentwood back, to the striking spindles to the upturned, curved arms to the comfort and functionality. A must for every Ercol fan wanting to expand their collection and as is the way with timeless design, it would look at home in a mixed-style interior, from midcentury influenced to traditional country cottage.
This is an original, vintage rocking chair that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good – excellent, used condition. The chair has been thoroughly cleaned and a natural beeswax polish applied. There are minor surface marks to the wood as you would expect with a vintage chair of this nature but these add to its rich patina and character in our view. We’ve shown some fading to both arm ends but as you can appreciate from our photos, overall the wear and tear is very minimal. It’s superbly constructed in solid elm and beech, with no signs of repairs or areas of concern. The blue Ercol sticker is still affixed to the back of the chair.
