A Story of Stickley

Once upon a time, around the turn of the 20th century, five brothers set out to create a line of honest, simple, and beautiful furniture made "Als Ik Kan" or "to the best of my ability."Image: spacer

From the Stickley website:
"The Stickleys used solid construction, what-you-see-is-what-you-get joinery, and the highest quality woods. But even more, they showed a genius for design, creating hundreds of new forms that were at once beautiful to look upon, practical to use, exceedingly strong and long-lasting, and perfect for the new ways American families wanted to live.

"Stickley furniture was not for shutting up in formal parlors—it was to be used and loved by young and old. Great emphasis was placed on letting the gorgeous, organic forms of quartersawn oak and other woods speak for themselves. Finishes were not thick gums, but clear dyes that allowed natural grain to sparkle."
Needless to say, when a consignor brought us this STUNNING 1990's Stickley mantel clock, we were blown away - it looks brand-stinkin'-new! These one-of-a-kind, collectible items are valued at up to $4,000, so our price tag of $989 will be hard to beat. You'll have this item in your family for generations to come.
