Gustav Stickley Eight Leg Sideboard
Gustav Stickley eight leg sideboard. It is quite early, possibly late 1901/early 1902. Produced before Gus had a dovetail machine as all the dovetails are hand cut. Proportioned a little different than later examples (the top is not quite as high and the gallery is a bit taller). The hardware is much different using square butt hinges and the elongated triangular bails on the doors. There is no veneer used in this piece. The doors are a frame and panel construction and the ends are glued up boards. The finish is fine and original however lightened with age. Signed with the 1902-1903 decal on the back. The dimensions are 49 1/2 inches tall x 69 3/4 inches wide x 29 3/4 inches deep.
