Wicker dining chairs are reminiscent of the Victorian era. Early wicker furniture that appeared in the mid and late 19th century was made from rattan palms that people grow and are harvested in the swamps and jungles in the East, which made the furniture, look exotic. The Far East material incorporated with American ingenuity and creativity resulted in colorful wicker furniture that was designed with great imagination and made to last. Wicker chairs come in different sizes and shapes: rocking chairs, fixed chairs, loveseats, daybeds and dining chairs.
A type of wicker chair from the 1880s is called a platform rocking chair and features a loop tongue design on top. Featured platform wicker rocking chairs weave the rear panels and volutes that flank the side. The base is wrapped in the cane, the seat is woven and the chair has a coiled serpentine crest on the back and a mountain ridge on the upper part of the arms.
