When I first laid eyes on this beautiful vintage porch glider, I really had to use my imagination as I often do when deciding whether to purchase a piece or leave it to rust away. It’s always a hard decision to leave one. A friend, her husband and I literally had to dig this glider from the earth before we realized that it could not even stand on its own two feet. Had it not been for the deco-inspired stylized detailing, I may have left it there at the roadside junk yard where we found it near Asheville, NC. As it was, I had my doubts. But I decided that the missing horizontal support bar could easily be replaced and so the 3 of us loaded it into the pickup.
