The JR Bunting Glider Company of Philadelphia was one of the main manufacturers of metal porch gliders. The cabinet and mattress-making business was founded in 1827, but during the 1920's Bunting started manufacturing steel porch gliders with integral upholstery. Soon the even more popular all-metal gliders with cut out motifs and patterns were added to the range. Although companies like Bunting which manufactured glider chairs and benches have been out of business for decades, it's great that many of their products have survived nearly a century of all-weather use and can still be found.
