Thomas Moser "New Gloucester" Rocker Chair circa 1992
NEW GLOUCESTER ROCKING CHAIR BY THOMAS MOSER
Signed to underside, circa 1992
Item # 801TGS27P
A very finely benchmade modern rocking chair by the firm of Thomas Moser, it was designed in 1984 and named after the Maine town that was home to their first workshop. A rich and striking piece crafted of solid cherry and ash. It is a fresh and interesting take on the more traditional rocking form and remains available for purchase from the Thomas Moser workshop. This example was completed in 1992 and is signed to the underside. It is an unusually comfortable piece that melds beautifully to your back as your arms rest on the fine sculpted supports over their split-wedge through-tenoned spindles. We love all of the tiny little wooden pins that lock the tenon joinery together. It is a most striking chair!

Excellent condition with original surface and only the most minor of wear. We made a repair to one spindle in the shop, this repair now invisible.
