Stickley Set of 6 Antique Mission Oak Arts & Crafts Dining Room Chairs w/ Labels. I have an enclosed truck so, crating would not be necessary. Please pay attention to the photos because they make up most of the description! This listing is for a set of six antique Stickley Dining Room Side Chairs. They are in Mission Oak Arts & Crafts style.
All six chairs have the red colored L. Stickley label on them (see photo). My research shows that this label is circa 1906 - 1912.These chairs are in good shape for their age and to the best of my knowledge have never been refinished. These chairs are 36 inches tall, 18 inches wide and 17 inches deep.
The top of the seat measures about 18 ½ inches above the floor (without cushions). The seat itself measures 14 and half inches from front to back. The chairs are well used but are in good shape for their age.There is some age appropriate marks, nicks, dents, scratches etc. These marks are more prominent near the bottom of the chairs than the tops. The chairs are made of oak and have a beautiful wood grain. The structure of the chairs is strong and solid with tight joints. Im 6-1 tall and weigh 200 lbs. I can freely stand on the frames of these chairs without them starting to torque or being wobbly. Their strength is typical of the craftsmanship and solid construction of the Stickley mission style furniture of that era. It is obvious from the photos that the chairs do not have any upholstery on them. The chairs come with some plywood seats that were made by a relative about 20 years ago. My sister used to set these on the chairs and then place cushions on top of them. The plywood seats have been cut to the dimensions of the chairs and were painted a beige color. These chairs are being stored in a climate controlled, smoke-free structure. The history of this furniture is as follows. In the early 1900s my great-grandfathers family furnished their home with a large number of pieces of Stickley furniture. His name was William John Sinclair and his family lived in Oak Park, Illinois. His daughter Helen Sinclair (who was a classmate of Ernest Hemingways) and his son William Hamilton Sinclair (my grandfather) had indicated that their father had bought this furniture and they remembered it from their early childhood (my grandfather was born in 1900). All of this furniture was made by Stickley and is in Mission Oak Arts & Crafts style. Unfortunately all of the rest of the furniture, with the exception of these dining room chairs , has been refinished. If you come to see these you are free to take photos of the furniture but not of the premises.
Notice to any would-be thieves. This furniture is stored in an area protected by security cameras and dogs. Furthermore, Im a Marine Corps veteran and retired police firearms instructor.
