George Hunzinger was a furniture maker during the later half of the 19th century. He emigrated to the United States in 1855 and began manufacturing furniture in New York City. Like his contemporary furniture makers of the Victorian Age, Hunzinger's pieces are very decorative. What is unique about his furniture is the innovative and distinctive designs he patented. This site contains information and photo's of Hunzinger's work.

This is something I have not seen before - a folding stool atributed to Hunzinger. No date stamp is shown. Nor is a patent mark indicated. But the style is fairly similar to his other work. It is listing on eBay - starting bid $150.00.
