Description: Fine American Carved Walnut and Gilt-Incised Sofa and Armchair, c. 1870, stamped "Hunzinger/N.Y./Pat. March 30, 1869", (George Hunzinger), each swagged crest with gilt medallion, padded back and curved seat, distinctive canted paw feet, turned stretchers, sofa h. 46 1/2 in., w. 67 in., d. 36 1/2 in.; chair h. 44 in., w. 31 in., d. 26 1/2 in. Note: Seated furniture by Hunzinger has been conserved in several collections including The National Trust at Lyndhurst (Tarrytown, New York), the Strong Museum in Rochester, New York, and the New York State Museum in Albany. A chair featuring a similar gilt medallion has been conserved by the Brooklyn Museum in New York City. The distinctive ornamented design of this sofa and armchair has been described as resembling machine works by some scholars and is considered the apogee of Hunzinger's oeuvre.
