Information on a Murphy Rocking Chair?

I have a Murphy rocking chair #109 made in Detroit. I cannot find any information on this. I have been told this is my great great grandmother's. Can you help?

This one was made in the 1920s. They are asking $200. www.ebay.com/.../322369883222?hash=item4b0ebe0c56...

It is a nursing or sewing rocker, they are made low to the ground and without arm so its easy to work on skirts or blankets. I just got my great grandma rocker!

Hi,

Your chair is so beautiful! I just wanted to remark on how lovely it is.

Blessings,

I call this style a nursing rocker or slipper rocker. The photo is bit dark, but it looks lovely.

If you are asking because you want to sell it, I see a lot of them for sale, but none selling, which is sad.

Asking prices go from $50 to $300. Asking price is not a value--it is what the seller wants for it.

I believe this to be the same company that was in Detroit--this link has their history:

Thanks for sharing!
