As I was looking at this chair and taking photographs I noticed an interesting clue that tells us this is a mass produced rocking chair. If you look at the carved panels (of which there are 3 on this rocking chair) you will notice that instead of being a balanced carving with a clear center and mirroring sides, it seems to be a replicating pattern that could have easily been carved over and over by a machine. But the real kicker is that the replicating pattern isn't centered on the chair. It looks as though a long strip of wood was machine carved, chopped into pieces and then bent into shape.
While this is a fine method for making furniture, and you end up with a sturdy piece with beautiful carving for a lower price, it would be better if the maker had at least paid a little attention to detail and centered the pattern in each chair. If the middle of the three flowers on this rocking chair was one inch to the left, I probably would never have noticed the obvious mass production clue. Or, if a more subtle carving design was chosen, that didn't have such distinct parts, then centering the design would not have been an issue at all.
