Model number 970 Lumbar Back Plantation Rocker by Troutman Chair Co.

About the 970 Plantation Rocker:

The 970 rocker is the same size as the 930 rocker, but the 970 features an upgraded steam bent lumbar back.  It makes those days of Porch Therapy go by even sweeter. Troutman Chair Company, established in 1924, has been family owned since its inception and is based in our home state of North Carolina.

In the late 1990s, they came up with the predecessor to this rocker, the 930. At one slat wider than our 430 rocker, this rocker is just the thing for those a bit broader in the shoulders.  The posts are just a bit thicker and the whole rocker has a more stout feel. They have expanded upon this and given us the Lumbar supports on the back and called it the 970 which you see here.  As always there is no glue in the construction of these rockers.

All of the finishes are special order.  For larger orders please feel free to contact us for a freight quote if you are not picking them up from our Wilmington location.
