ALAMEDA, Calif. — Fine furniture from the Stickley family of craftsmen are the featured category in California Historical Design’s Arts & Crafts auction scheduled for Saturday, December 9. The catalog is now available for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

The five Stickley brothers — Gustav, Leopold, John George, Albert, and Charles — were stars of the early 20th-century American Arts & Crafts movement. Launched by Gustav (1858-1942) in 1900, Stickley hand-crafted some of the most iconic designs of the period, highlighted by his famous Mission style and brother Leopold’s Cherry Valley designs via his own brand, L. & J. G. Stickley.

The sale includes 57 Stickley lots, led by an early 1902 Gustav Stickley oak and hammered copper bridal chest. Completely original and still bearing the red Stickley decal, the chest is estimated at $15,000-$20,000.

Bernard Maybeck (1962-1957) was a Berkeley, California native, architect and furniture designer who left a similarly large legacy to the Arts & Crafts movement. The sale includes three Maybeck items by his own hand, plus two additional items from homes he designed. A love seat, settee and a hand-carved table are all estimated at $25,000-$35,000 each.

Begun as therapy for sanitarium patients, Marblehead Pottery grew to become a production-based earthenware company focused on hand-decorated items. This floral-motif vase dating to circa 1910 is from early in the company’s history and is described as being in “perfect condition.” It is estimated at $2,500-$3,500.
