There are 12 images of this item.
Hunzinger ebonized platform rocker with back and seat of rare fabric over brass, c1870. Hunzinger produced and patented his fabric wrapped brass to replace cane. Just after the Civil War, cane was scarce, and Hunzinger wanted something that would last forever. This could be one of the rarest, if not the rarest, examples of Hunzinger furniture because the rocker has a combination of hand painting and inlay. Stamped Hunzinger on the back rail. Pat. April 18th 1876. Excellent original condition. Measures 38 and one half inches to the top of the back, 19 inches deep, 21 inches wide and 17 inches to the top of its seat. There is a settee in the Metropolitan Museum of Art with this type of fabric over over brass weaving. It is the only known piece of inlaid hunzinger.
