Timeless Furniture Designs by Gustav Stickley Are Up for Sale at Toomey & Co.Mar 02, 2023 11:00 CST
Furniture designer and maker Gustav Stickley was one of the most prominent figures of the American Arts and Crafts movement. As well as disseminating Arts and Crafts ideals, Stickley helped shape American taste and influence design in the United States by marketing his furniture and home plans. Since 1900, with his pioneering “mission” or “craftsman” furniture, he demonstrated how every home deserves solid, honest furniture that is crafted with uncompromising workmanship and provides real functionality. A Spindle Morris chair made by Gustav Stickley is a key highlight of the upcoming sale from Toomey & Co. Incorporating exposed joinery and oak, accompanied by Gustav Stickley’s trademark Flemish phrase Als Ik Kan, this Morris chair is a classic example of American furniture design.
The sale will also feature a woodblock print by Gustave Baumann. A painter and printmaker, Gustave Baumann was known primarily for his striking polychrome woodblock prints depicting scenes from the American Southwest. The artist created an impressive collection of color woodblock prints that combined his woodcarving skills with painting sensibilities. The available print shows two boats moored at a dock on a creek, set against an autumnal field and trees in the background. Explore more items and register to bid by visiting Toomey & Co.
