Antique George Hunzinger Chairs are original pieces of furniture made by George Hunzinger, a German born furniture maker who produced some of the most innovative and original chair designs of the 19th century.
History & Description

Born in 1835, Germany, George Hunzinger emigrated to the United States in 1855 and began manufacturing furniture in New York City.

Hunzinger was renowned for incorporating new technology and materials into his furniture and was one of the foremost patent furniture designers.

Today, his protomodern furniture designs are extremely sought after by antique furniture collectors.

In recent years, chairs designed by George Hunzinger have become increasingly popular items for collectors. One of the most idiosyncratic and innovative furniture designers to emerge from America in the nineteenth century, Hunzinger’s chair designs were atypical of the furniture produced in the Victorian age, which has ensured that there is growing market for Hunzinger chairs.

While still relatively uncommon at both Bonhams and Sotheby’s, Hunzinger chairs are frequently sold at Christie’s and prices tend to range from $600 to $2,000.
