Christie's Important American Arts and Architectural Designs, New York, December 10, 1988, p. 53, for a single-door example of the revised design. This design was made for a limited time from 1901 to 1902. By late 1902, Stickley had modified the form. The pierced corbels were eliminated and the lower doors were simple veneered panels rather than mullioned boards with butterfly joints.
