A wonderful sale featuring eight pieces of RICHARD HUNTER furniture including a couple of rarely found pieces. Hunter, who died in the '70s I believe, was an African American furniture maker who made hand hewn wooden chairs and other pieces with woven corn shuck seats. These pieces were sold in local Camden shops after World War 11 and have been since recognized as usable Folk Art. A recent symposium at the McKissick Museum, Columbia, SC, showcased pieces of Hunter furniture and several chairs have been sold to important folk art collectors at auction.
