Somno, Model No. 605
executed by the Craftsman Workshops of Gustav Stickley, Eastwood, New York
30 x 18 x 16 in. (76.2 x 45.7 x 40.6 cm)
Overall in very good condition. The somno appears to retain its original dark finish which is in beautifully preserved condition, displaying only some occasional scattered and minor surface scratches, abrasions, dents and light wear consistent with age and gentle use. The proper left rear leg with a small surface irregularity above the through-tenon which appears to be inherent to the natural surface of the wood and displays a slightly darker color, not visually distracting and only visible upon close inspection. The interior of the cabinet appears to retain its original green stain and is in very good condition. A rare and exemplary early work by the firm.
