I am looking for my forever rocking chair. It needs a tall back so that I can take a nap in it without my head flopping back. Most rocking chairs are 45 in tall or thereabouts, and that does not work for me. I did find one called a Windsor that was 54 inches tall. The seats are also a bit low for me at 15 inches height, though if the back is tall enough I could perhaps add a firm cushion to raise myself up. A glider might be all right, again if it's tall enough.
Oh, that one is gorgeous! I hope you find it! Your best bet might be one from a Mennonite or Amish community. I have mine, and it might make it out to the porch, someday. So far, though, I've felt too protective of it, lol. Mine was Amish made, and I've had it since the spring of '08. I'll see if I can remember to get a pic, to post, along with measurements, in a bit. But, it has a very tall back, and it's very tailored to the normal curvature of the human spine. I could sit in it for hours, without a cushion. Ok, if I were ever able, I could - but we have critters, and it seems like someone always needs SUMPIN! lol.

I agree with everything stated above. I have an Amish-made, high-backed wooden rocker that fits me perfectly, I tried it out in the store. It is the most comfortable chair in the world for me. My husband can't stand sitting in it, though, it hits his back in all the wrong places.
