Dramatic Walnut and Burl Rocking Chair by Michael Elkan
Beautiful example of the American studio movement by Michael Elkan. Elkan maintained a west coast studio, and also reatiled his works thru the George Nakashima studio in Pennsylvania. He favoured combining wood types, specifically exploiting the beauty of burled woods. The present rocker in composed of walnut legs, spindles and backrest, while the armrests and seat are crafted from solid maple burl. The maple has incredibly rich detailing, including natural protrusions to the rear of the seat.
