While surfing the web sites of antique furniture in BC I came across came across "Antiques by design" a very informative website. While visiting the lower mainland I decided to see their show room and was pleasantly surprised.

Victorian Oak Baby / Childs High Chair Metamorphic Rocker
Victorian Oak baby child's high chair metamorphic rocker. This is probably the best high chair we have had for sale. This high chair is in solid tight and refinished condition. The turning on the posts spindles and legs is very nice and so is the press or carving on the bow shaped back crest rail. The food tray is in good shaped and lifts up properly and the metal bar that holds the tray down is complete. This chair has the original cane in the seat bottom and all of the original mechanism for converting the high chair into the rocker works properly. These Victorian metamorphic high chairs were either the high chair / stroller model which is the most common or this type the high chair / rocker model. The two teardrop shaped legs with cut outs on each side are joined by a metal strap and the chair has all of the original metal wheels. To lower the high chair down into the rocking position you simply pull up on the Oak knob at the back of the chair and the legs unlock and open. Wouldn't it be neat to know how many children have sat in this chair?
