Hill Texas Archive Research Notes
"Although this example is a slat-back rocking chair of the ubiquitous vernacular type, several features make it distinctive. The slats, four rather than three, are attractively notched, the arm supports are nicely turned. With the exception of the seat rail, which is mortised, the members are nailed together." Lonn Taylor and David B. Warren, Texas Furniture, The Cabinetmakers and Their Work, 1840-1880, Austin: University of Texas Press, 1975, p. 136.
