Designed by Peter Cooper and produced by Robert W. Winfield & Co, of Birmingham, who was largely regarded as a metallic campaign furniture maker. Winfield, like many of their contemporaries, sought to establish a new design style that could represent the quickly changing times in which he lived. With any design assessment of this progressive chair, it is clear to see why Winfield was considered a visionary by his Fleet Street rivals. This steel, brass and leather 19th Century rocking chair is a spectacular work of design, the supple leather is padded over a tambour wood slatted frame, allowing the chair to progressively float forward. Designed by Peter Cooper, and produced by R.W. Winfield & Co of Birmingham. R.W.Winfield first exhibited this chair design at the Great Exhibition of 1851, where it was a sensation, due to its modernistic design, and the use of steel. An identical example can be found at the V&A London.
