Summary

This Arts and Crafts style chair was purchased in Chicago, Illinois between 1910 and 1920. It was donated along with a desk made by the Stickley Brothers, with which it was paired. An unusual example, this oak chair shows the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie style in its severely rectilinear back outfitted with slats that continue below the seat.
