I was looking through your beautiful Hunzinger furniture one evening and saw these chairs and thought, "wow, those look like the two Hunzinger chairs I have." Sure enough, I bought these two off ebay. They still have the same upholstery as in these photos. These currently (03/2013) reside in Wichita, KS. They came to me (in Wichita) from the Overlook Mansion in New York. So you can now say they did finally sell!
