I have this same rocker but with no tray. If it is the same one there is a screw handle in the back to lower it down to a rocker. Don't know how old it is but it seems strong and I love the oak wood just wish I had the tray for it.

I saw one go last evening for $25.00 at auction, I saw the item here that previous day but passed on the piece. I'm sure a venue that focused on furniture with the right buyer (with a toddler) or a grandparent that the piece of course is worth more.

It is a nice piece, as described with the screw handle.

But honest up and verifiable with the auction house, it went for $25.00.

Wow I had one of these for my son who is know 18 and my husband sold it, needless to say i was very upset especially because he sold it for $10.00. So how much are you asking?
