Magazine stand with cut-out sides, c.1905
chestnut  44"h x 18"w x 14"d
$1800

Who doesn't have just the spot for this kind of piece?  Ideal for a special collection of pottery, currently-read books, small electronic equipment, and so on.  The cut-outs on the sides give it a vaguely English feel, and serve to enliven the design.  In pristine original condition, it beautifully demonstrates why Gustav Stickley praised the virtues of chestnut so highly - the depth of color and figuring are beautiful.  An additional detail that is so subtle it has to be the result of a skilled and mature designer: the through-tenons are gently rounded.  Click on the picture for a larger image and see what I mean.

Stickley Bros.
Cane-sided Prairie-style library table, c.1910
oak with original cane
30"h x 40"w x 26"d
$2800

This is a beautiful, elegant little table in extraordinary original condition and finish.  I personally like these caned pieces a lot.  They are precise, simple, beautifully-proportioned and elegant.  Not everyone has caught on to their appeal yet, but they will, and the prices will no doubt increase.  Buy this table now, and show everyone else how prescient you were!
