About the Author:

Jean and Franklin Hunting, of Hunting House Antiques, have participated in hundreds of antiques shows for over 25 years, from the east coast to the west coast and places in between. They have scoured flea markets from Pasadena, California, to Brimfield, Massachusetts, attended estate sales and auctions, and shopped the shows and shops, always in search of interesting merchandise. In 1973, they first fell in love with match holders when they spotted one in New Hampshire in the form of a swinging acorn, patent date January 21, 1862. Eventually, they amassed well over two hundred and are still finding interesting and rare examples. Due to Franklin's position as a Marketing Manager with Westinghouse Electric Corporation (now retired), they have moved around the country many times, from California to Maryland to Arizona and back to California. Currently, they reside in Fresno, California, and still participate in antiques shows. You may have seen them at the Hillsborough Antiques Show in San Mateo, California. They have one son, Franklin Randall Hunting, who is an Intelligence Research Specialist with the U. S. Customs Service. Randy lives in Berkeley, California, with his wife, Jackie.
