It will be hard to give a value to it if you dont know who manufactured it. Look on the bottom for a marking.

It's a very pretty chair and looks to be in excellent shape.

Unfortunately, most of the spindle rockers have not held their value. They made way too many and unless it is a big brand name or has fancy carving or decorative trim, they just aren't in demand much, which is sad.

While there are no exact matches on eBay at the moment, you will see tons of similar ones going unsold for as low as 10.00.

Since it has no markings, you may want to to take it to a reputable vintage or furniture dealer and ask what they would value it at in your town.

If they are still popular where you are, that will increase the value if the supply is low. Especially since your chair is in nice shape!

Post back with what they tell you!

Without a brand name and no provenance/history of your chair it just becomes an ordinary "old" rocking chair to many people and not on their "most wanted" list.

Many stores are selling chairs that look very similar to yours and even new, they are not costly and usually have free shipping.

Plain indoor rocking chairs are not bringing very high prices right now so it might be a good idea to try and find out more about who made it and when.

You can try some of the free appraisal sites just to see what they may be able to tell you but be sure you have looked carefully for any markings or numbers.
