Mission Furniture: From the American Arts and Crafts Movement

Paul Royka

Available Now


In 1988, Barbara Streisand paid $363,000 dollars at auction for a sideboard by Gustav Stickley, establishing mission furniture as a rival of early American furniture. Since then dealers and collectors have scrambled to learn how to identify makers and evaluate prices. This extensive book presents the histories of the major mission furniture companies including Stickley, Limbert, Roycroft, Young, Harden, Leavens, and others. With more than 300 color photographs, Mission Furniture provides identification clues, glossary of terms, and values. It also documents the never-before published furniture designs of the William Leavans Company. This is an excellent reference source that is a must for dealers, collectors, interior designers, and anyone interested in the American Arts and Crafts Movement.
