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!

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.
