Original L. & J. G. Stickley Handcraft Morris Chair with Slats to the Floor

Original L.& J.G. Stickley adjustable Morris chair with three positions, model #498, with slats down to the floor, tenoned through the arms and legs, and in a dark, rich ebonized original finish. We recovered the original spring seat cushion with a quality leather. This chair shows finish wear on the arms and some edges from use, but also shows very little wear due to having been well cared for through the years. The bevel on the bottom of the feet, as shown, is still pronounced and crisp. The light areas highlight the chair accentuating it's three dimensional appearance. While we personally would not change the lighter color of the arms, we could color enhance them to put back the original color upon the buyers request. The small piece of oak between the first and second notch at the back of the arm was poorly replaced before we purchased the chair. We corrected the repair with an old piece of oak and matched the color and finish as shown in the close-up of the back of the arm. The chair is in otherwise excellent condition, no looseness, and is signed with the red decal in the shape of a woodworkers clamp and reads: "L.&J.G. Stickley, Handcraft", the mark used from 1906 to 1912. This form is one of their most desirable Morris chairs and is considerably less common than the typical L.&J.G. Stickley Morris chair with slats only to the seat and is similar to the Gustav Stickley model #332 Morris chair.

The small piece of oak between the first and second notch, begining at the back of the arm, was poorly replaced and attached with an exposed large brass screw, before we purchased the chair.  We corrected the repair using an old piece of oak from vintage furniture parts,attached it with two dowels and glue, and matched the color and finish as shown in the close-up of the back of the arm. You would most likely not notice it if we did not mention it, but you can always trust us to mention it.
