Presented for your viewing and bidding pleasure is a consignment consisting of an original Kroehler Mission Oak Davenport/bed and matching Rocker. Peter Kroehler was the founder in about 1893 and in 1912 received a patent for the Davenport/bed. His design was new and innovative. He produced a Mission Oak davenport...pure Mission style and inside was a fold out quality bed. It was built for comfort and to last. The rocker was a simple Mission style, but had class and nearly extreme comfort...one of the best this seller has ever had the opportunity to sit on. The owner of these pieces is now in her late 80's and received this from her parents. This set was on her sun porch and their son slept on it many a night. According to him it was very comfortable. The davenport is in very good condition, yes, t are some dings and scratches from years of use. Nothing dramatic. It could stand recovering. The original covering was something of a doped type cloth, made to look like leather...all the original covering is still t Yes, t are tears and one small hole w a bit of spring comes through. The covering does show wear. The bed portion still seems to work as well as when it was new. To open the bed, first, the backrest on the couch lifts up, swinging into a new position. An original strap on the bed frame can be seen, then the front portion lifts up and out, then the frame unfolds moving forward, finally setting out out flat, ready for a thin or thick mattress. The rocker also has a few dings and scratches, but again nothing dramatic. The original fabric (doped cloth) does show some wear and a few small tears. It still has a high degree of comfort and functions just fine. The Davenport/Bed is 59 1/2 inches long, 33 1/8 inches tall and 32 inches in depth. The original steel rollers make it easy to move and position. The rocker is 25 3/4 inches wide, about 34 inches tall and 30 3/8 inches deep to the rear of the rocker arm. This is a wonderful original Kroehler set, still fully functional and with a recovering...a most splendid, near antique set. The bidding begins low for such a quality set and...T'S NO RESERVE!
