Catalogue Note:
This example is similar to Gustav Stickley's original dining room sideboard manufactured for his 438 Columbus Avenue residence in Syracuse, New York. A house fire in 1901 gave Stickley the opportunity to renovate the interior to suit his Craftsman-style taste, making his home an early American example of an exclusively Arts & Crafts designed interior. This sideboard is quite rare and only four examples of this form are known.

The remaining examples reside in the collections of The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms, The Two Red Roses Foundation and The Crab Tree Farm Foundation, where the sideboard was exhibited at the Dallas Museum of Art.
