March’s Object of the Month

March’s Object of the Month was chosen by our longtime Collections volunteer, Joyce Holloway. It is one of her favorite objects at the museum! 
 
Victorian Child’s Rocker, ca. 1880-1890; maple and wicker. 
 
Manufactured by Heywood Bros. & Co., Gardner, Massachusetts.
 
This child’s rocking chair has a wicker weave back with a Japanese fan, moon, and five pointed star. It has a bowed crest rail continuing in arms with a chain motif. 
 
How gorgeous!
