Lazy Blogger v. George Hunzinger

Where do I get all these Hunzinger pics? Well, when I first started this blog, I looked up maybe about 10 on my own. But since then, Christa finds all the ones off eBay for me and other readers send me links and pics as well. Quite frankly, I haven't had to search for a picture to post in like 6 months. Between this torrent of Hunzingers being sold on eBay and several readers (Tony & John W) sending me perhaps 40 chair pics they have gathered, I am backlogged. For a lazy blogger, being backlogged is the best thing in the world! Thanks to everyone who sends pics my way!

Oh, and for anyone reading, please send pics of your own Hunzinger pieces. I would love to post them!

Finally, Here is another awesome piece from the Met. This one is featured in Harwood's book.

Hunzinger Folding Chair

I would love to be able to break out a set of these folding chairs when company comes over... however, I will have to be content to just look at it on my blog. :( Check out the woodwork...

Corner Chair

Another Victorian era chair being billed as Hunzinger. This piece did not sell at its listed price of $325. But it is a fine chair and I'm sure it will go back up for auction sometime. Check it out:

The Mother of All Hunzinger Chairs...

This piece being sold on eBay is one of the finest pieces of furniture known to man. (IMHO) It is simply marvelous. Although it needs to be dusted and a few hundred bucks worth of new upholstery, it is one step away from being magnificent. A pristine version of this Hunzinger chair was shown in Harwood's book. Check them both out:

Note: I'll post the ending bid tommorow. Bidding ends in 40 minutes.
UPDATE: Sold for $4806. Worth it? I think so.

Hunzinger Plant Stand?

This interesting plant stand is being billed as a Hunzinger. Regardless of the manufacturer, it is very cool and I'm sure there are very few of these around. The seller is posting this one on eBay with a starting bid of $1700 and a Buy it now price of $2200. So far there are no bids on it. Although it may be overpriced, I suspect it may have to do with the pictures. For whatever reason, the seller chose to take the very blurry pictures next to what appears to be a trash pile and a ruined couch.

Yet again, people will list anything with a twisted part as a Hunzinger. Although this chair is very Hunzingerish, the manufacture's mark is definitly not.
