  Steel Rocker This loveseat is made in a simple elegant timeless design in polished steel. Probably manufactured by Peter Cooper in Trenton, New Jersey, Circa 1860. The rocker has been extended to create a love seat. The Steel Rocking chair was among other things produced by R.W. Winfield & Co.., Birmingham from 1851, but is already illustrated in John Porter's park & garden furniture catalog from 1839. An American variant was constructed by industrialist Peter Cooper, at his foundry in Trenton, New Jersey, ca. 1860-70. The chair was patented in 1867 by Herman Berg. The English architect P.H. Desvignes sent a drawing of Winfield’s rocking chair from the World Exhibition in 1851 for Thonet, who in 1860 introduced a version in bentwood.
