Catalogue Note

The present china cabinet was designed by LaMont Warner for Gustav Stickley's workshop.  It is distinguished by its elegant proportions, emphasizing form and decoration over strict rectilinearity.  An abstract heart motif and horizontal band of diamonds impart the cabinet with strong dynamism which is balanced by the the restrained lines of the case.  Works with leaded glass are rare within Stickley's production—there are only four other known extant examples of the present cabinet model: one in the collection of the American Decorative Art 1900 Foundation, New York, one in the collection of the Two Red Roses Foundation, Palm Harbor, Florida, and two in private collections.
