Offered for sale a rare 1890 era George Hunzinger (1835 – 1898) Lollipop Settee in mahogany woods. Patented in 1888, the Lollipop line was immediately popular with collectors who wanted to break away from the ponderous heavy pieces that were being overproduced by other popular Victorian furniture makers of the day. Hunzinger's pieces were both unique and innovative and embraced the concept of machine made techniques or "Patent Furniture." He was known as the Father of the folding-reclining chair, and in his lifetime amassed a total of 21 technical patents for his "modern kinetic" furniture styles.
The Lollipop bench is in excellent condition with a recently upholstered seat restored in an aesthetically pleasing plaid with tassels.
Size: 34" Height by 22" Depth by 39" Width.
