This is an Antique Gustav Stickley Spindle Morris Chair from the early 1900’s. This is a great looking chair that is in very good condition with a good original finish with some minor normal usage wear.
The chair has a good selection of quarter sawn oak. All of the spindles are original with no bowing and the back is also original. Most times in public auctions we see these chair with all kinds of replaced parts.
The chair has a double through tenon and pinned construction on the front, back, and the arms and all pined. Gustav Stickley made several different versions of this model of chairs.
He made a 17,18, 20, and 22 spindled sided chair and the one we have with 20 spindles on each side is very rare! The seat cushion and the back cushion have been recovered with a top quality black hand-rubbed leather filled with cotton and hair. (Not Cheap Foam) We use a very high-quality leather from Germany and if you compare our seats to the other dealers you will see the difference.
The cushion is sitting on the original canvas sling with the original leather on the sides. (See Pictures) Underneath the sling is the original webbing straps with only one having some minor restoration. We try and make the furniture as time period correct as we can and also we make the seats very comfortable. This chair is sturdy and strong and it is ready to be used and enjoyed in your home or business.
We are after this chair for more then ten years from the original summer home in Canadaigua NY and after all these years the chair end up in a local auction in central PA where we finally putchased it.
At that time we offered $10000.00 for the chair but the owner decided to keep it and here we purchased the same chair for much less.
Most of our shop inventory are from these NY wealthy summer homes on the lake.
