George Hunzinger Candle Stand
Unfortunately I was too late on purchasing a nice table from Antiquarian Traders, pictured above. It had previously been sold by the time that I inquired and had not yet been removed from one of the many sites that they sell their inventory from (TIAS, Trocadero, Ruby Lane, etc.). Although it isn’t a beefy and highly decorative table, it is visually appealing and was special because of the price ($850) and who made it – George Hunzinger (though not marked as such). You can see an identical table on page 84 in Barry Harwood’s book, “The Furniture of George Hunzinger, Invention and Innovation in Nineteenth-Century America” (with the marble missing, mind you). Although we often see chairs by Hunzinger come up for sale, it is not often that you see marble-top tables from him (remember, many of the other tables often attributed to him are Merklen).
If you haven’t stopped by Antiquarian Trader’s website, it is worth the visit and they have just listed many of their items on Ebay’s Live Auction site (824 pieces of furniture) to be sold August 22nd, including items from Jelliff, Belter, Pottier & Stymus and many more.
