A man and his chair...

Tony sent me this fine period picture of a man and his Hunzinger chair. Looks pretty happy doesn't he. And why not, he has his own Hunzinger. I'd be happy too!

Thx again Tony!

I own this chair. Unfortunatly it has been painted then restored, but it is beautiful.

Sweet. If you get a chance, send me the pic. I would be thrilled to post it.

Hunzinger chairs were popular with photographers
in the late 19th century; they were frequently used
as studio props (as in the case of this studio portrait).
I have seen them in stereoviews as well as cabinet
photos and carte de visites.
