Hunzingerish

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...

Good Evening, I know this comment is over a year too late - I just found your blog. I have 2 of these great little bamboo folding chairs. They were made by the E. W. Vaill Chair Co. of Worchester Mass. in the 1870's. They were/are originally ebonized with Wilton carpet sling seat and back panels. An image of this chair appears in E&R Dubrow's "Made in America" book of Victorian furniture on page 256.
