Hunzinger Standard Rocker - With Patent

This nice piece is on eBay right now. It is a standard rocker with a patent stamp. I hate the upholstery... could use some leather or something...

More and More Hunzinger Rockers

Very sweet Hunzinger platform rocker with patented spring system. It's good that the finish looks great on it, because it would be a nightmare to re-finish. Probably 60 hours to do it right. I'm not keen on the red upholstery, but that could be replaced without too much trouble.

New Features

I added a handful of Blogger's new features. The slideshow is pretty neat, but it picks up pictures of non-hunzinger furniture as well. I may have to go back and re-tag some older posts.

Hunzinger Folding Chair

A reader sent this to me. He wanted to know how to get an apprasial. I gave him a number, but cautioned him that I'm not exactly a appraiser. In any case, the chair is absolutely beautiful and has a patent stamp. (Thanks Trent)

Typical Knock-Off Hunzingerish Rocker

This is pretty much your standard spring rocker mis-attributed to Hunzinger.

Lollipop Hunzinger Rocker

I'm not a huge fan of the lollipops, but this rocker is pretty nice. Check out the twisted spindles in the front - from personal experience, each of those takes like 5 hours to remove paint from. Another observation - the horizontal reinforcement bar through the back spindles. I don't recall seeing one like this before.
Thx Christa for sending it my way!

Hunzinger Folding Chair v. Idiots, et. al.

Christa sent this folding chair my way. It went on eBay for a meer $110. Why so low? A strap was broken. What an Idiot. He should have spent the 15 minutes to fix the strap and then sell it for $250. Speaking of Idiots, I should have bought it, fixed the strap and mad a $140 on the deal... er minus shipping.... probably would have only made $1. Nevermind.

Mystery Solved

Paul Tucker sent me these photos of pieces attributed to Merklen Brothers. They look a lot more like the pedestal than Hunzinger's other works. Mystery solved! Thanks Paul!
