It is untrue that all Stickley was labeled. Stickley & Brandt were infrequently labeled.  We have just aquired a similar "fancy chair" from a descendent of a Stickley & Brandt worker. I can't say for sure if yours is a Stickley & Brandt, but if it is the estimated date of "1920s" is also inaccurate - the company declared bankruptcy in 1918.  More likely the chair was made in the last decade of the 19th century or first decade of the 20th century.

I have the identical chair with a label on the seat bottom. Stickley & Brandt ceased operation in 1918. It is a mixture of styles but it is also a exceedingly handsome chair.

I recently purchased this chair at auction, truly spectacular and very comfortable too.  No label anywhere on mine either.

Expertise

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. robertsantiques@cox.net You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.

Experience

I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
