Hunzinger "Styled" Rocker

No stamp on this rocker, but it is definitly similar to other pieces by Hunzinger. The only thing I would question is the placement of the cross-brace. In this piece, the cross-brace appears to be there just for looks & to hold up the arm rests as opposed to being the front legs of the chair.

Reclining Chair - 1866 Patent

This is a great peice on eBay and a perfect example of how not to upholster your fine 140 year-old antique Hunzinger folding chair. That patern looks like a cross between a lawn chair from Lowes and a needlepoint of letuce and rotten tomatos. I'll try to update this in a day or so with the sale price.

Hunzinger? Not so much...

This chair is listed on an antique website as being attributed to Hunzinger... I'm not convinced. Not much here that matches up with his other furniture. I won't believe it until I see a patent or a stamp for this model chair. This is part of a set listed for $9500.
