Stickley Cherry Highboy
Stickley cherry highboy with Queen Anne legs and a flat top. This beautiful hand crafted highboy was made by Leopold Stickley Furniture Company in circa 1950- 1960. The same model chest is located in the Stickley Museum in New York State.
Leopold Stickley was inspired by a period English piece Stickley acquired in the 1920’s. Much of his Cherry Valley collection was inspired by 18th century British style, infused with a classic American twist.
This highboy has a total of 8 drawers, each with brass Chippendale hardware. The drawers are dovetailed on all sides, and all but two also have side hung grooves. Side hung drawers are a telltale sign of Stickley’s commitment to craftsmanship. This chest also has a beautiful mellow cherry finish with warm undertones. The Stickley cherry highboy also has a scalloped bottom and Queen Anne feet.
The chest is in very good condition and in original finish. It has a few light scratches on the top, and a small imperfection here and there on the top molding. However, these small imperfections do not detract from the beauty of this true American vintage piece.
It would be beautiful in any colonial style home.
