Gus Commemorative Bookcase

print this page

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of Gustav Stickley’s birth, Stickley reissued this rare double bookcase in 2008. An original, once part of a private camp’s furnishings in New York’s Thousand Islands region, sold in December 2007 at Sotheby’s for $361,000. The structural elements of the piece demonstrate Gustav’s complete understanding of proportion and craftsmanship. The doors are made up of 12 panes of glass that are held in place by 48t quarter rounds. Frame-and-panel sides are supported by inverted corbels and double legs at each corner. The slight Gothic arch to the top glass panes adds dimension and doors open to reveal two adjustable shelves on either side of one fixed shelf. The first 150 of this historic reissue produced bear a plaque with an individual number. Available in solid oak.
