Drop Arm Sette

Wow!  You don't see these very often (my first time, actually).  This drop arm settee was listed at $1,450 on ebay, but did not sell, so look for it in the future.  You might also find it at Chatsworth-Auction-Rooms.

"Very fine and rare antique Victorian era George Hunzinger "Lollipop" drop arm settee ~ bench, c.1860, not marked. Having 25 stick & ball "Lollipop" spindles on rear with 8 flat topped spindles on the drop arms all strung together with a hidden brass rod.  Single ball top finial arm support and standing on shaped Cabriole style legs with brass casters. Simple loose seat cushion. Older repairs to frame and seat board. Original finish with nice worn patina. Measures 40 inches wide X 34 1/2 inches high at rear."

It was withdrawn from Ebay before before anyone could bid!
