I would have no problem sitting down in that chair and "feeling right at home"

I believe that that is a Mission style rocker.
When did Mission style come into being?

Herb,

From Wikipedia:

Mission furniture is a style of furniture that originated in the late 19th Century. It traces its origins to a chair made by A.J. Forbes around 1894 for San Francisco's Swedenborgian Church. The term mission furniture was first popularized by Joseph P. McHugh of New York, a furniture manufacturer and retailer who copied these chairs and offered a line of stylistically related furnishings by 1898. The word mission references the Spanish missions throughout colonial California, though the design of most Mission Style furniture owed little to the original furnishings of these missions. The style became increasingly popular following the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo in 1901. The style was popularly associated with the American Arts and Crafts movement.[1]

Henry, You beat me. What you said on Mission furniture is correct. I think that the sales room in the photo
is in the early 20's.
