This child's glider, purchased by our client's mother in the 40's, was originally manufactured by the Goshen Mfg Company in Goshen, IN.

We often have projects come to us after someone has attempted a DIY fix. Such is the case with this rocker. Fortunately our client had two old photographs from the 1950's showing the rocker as it was originally.
Using the photos and our expertise, the rocker is ready to be enjoyed for another 100 years.
