An article in the February 1973 issue of The Magazine Antiques depicts a page from the C.N. Arnold and Company catalog with an illustration of one of these rockers. Page 322 & 323 of that issue has an exposition of these Grecian rockers, along names of some of the manufacturer’s and dates when made (1879-1890’s).
