Hunzinger Lollipop Platform Rocker

This is an absolutely wonderful piece. The first platform duplex-spring rocker in the lollipop style that I have seen. Absolutely marvelous.

This chair is listed as "Hunzinger Style" which is an accurate description. It doesn't match any of his known patents and is meerly similar in style to his folding chairs. Nice bamboo though...

Hunzinger Chair

This one is in fairly good shape and on eBay right now. What is remarkable is how many pictures the seller posted - 12! I only put up five her to save space. Note the patent stamp and what appears to be very old upholstery covering the horse-hair padding. I found this same horse-hair padding on my chair... who knows... could have been the same horse!!! If you want to see the ebay listing, the eBay link is up at the RareVictorian.

Super cool Hunzinger chair

Check this one out. The most detail and ornamentation I have seen on this model Hunzinger chair. Very nice. Wish I had more pics of it.

Hunzinger Platform Rocker

This one is very nice. It has the twisted spindles like the Hunzinger my wife has and a leather upholstery like the one I have. I like it!

Two Patent Stamps

Here are two patent stamp images that are found on Hunzinger chairs. (I have probably posted these before along with the chairs to which they belong... however, I am cleaning out my pictures directory and want to make sure I have posted all my current Hunzinger stuff. I would look through all my posts... but, I think this is faster.)

Hunzinger chair - Original Upholstery?

People frequently inquire as to what the original upholstery looks like for Hunzinger chairs... well, I really don't know. I suspect that the more beat-up the upholstery is, the more likely that it is original. In this case... it is pretty much ripped to shreds. Still a beautiful chair.
