My rocking chair was sent from Vermont to France by mail in a big box, big brother had taken it apart and was able to box it up. Well, my daughter in law's father put it back together for me, and now I have a piece of home in my home. I was so excited, it was made in 1884,by someone, and I think that someone should be very proud to know that it is still loved and taken care of. It was in my Moms bedroom, and I always sat on it, small but just right!!
