I also have this same print, again with a few differences.  In my print, the whiskey bottles are replaced with beer bottles.  I also have two glasses on the side table instead of one.  My picture is also signed by C.M. Coolidge, and has a copyright date of 1895.  I think this piece of art was created prior to any of the pieces he did for Brown and Bigelow in 1903.  My husband got this print from an Uncle who worked at the Grand Ledge Chair factory in Grand Ledge Michigan, it used to hang in the foyer area.  When the factory closed, long time employees were told to take what the wanted.
