Overview

Mission Furniture: From the American Arts & Crafts Movement by Paul A. Royka

In 1988, Barbara Streisand paid $363,000 at auction for a sideboard by Gustav Stickley, establishing mission furniture as a rival of early American furniture. Since then, dealers and collectors have scrambled to learn how to identify makers and evaluate prices. This extensive book, now with updated values, has served as an essential tool for dealers and collectors trying to identify makers and evaluate these valuable pieces. Included are histories of the major mission furniture companies including Stickley, Limbert, Roycroft, Young, Harden, Leavens, and others. It also documents the never-before published furniture designs of the William Leavans Company. With more than 300 color photographs, Mission Furniture provides identification clues and a glossary of terms. This is an excellent reference source that is a must for dealers, collectors, interior designers, and anyone interested in the American Arts and Crafts Movement.
