Monumental Victorian Plant Stand by George Hunzinger

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An exceptional and wildly decorative Victorian plant stand by the New York City furniture maker, George Hunzinger. Likely executed in the 1880s, this piece is already hinting at the approaching modernist movements. Hunzinger was known for his unusual forms, many of which are included here: wooden spikes, discs, ribbed spheres and complex turned dowels and finials. The scale of this piece is remarkable and its otherworldly composition, especially considering the time of its creation, makes for a very special decorative statement. Wonderful original patina and condition.
