Skinner & Steenman Oak Sideboard (1898 – 1905)
In 1888 Charles Otis Skinner resigned from the New England Furniture Company and organized a co-partnership with Henry Steenman to manufacture furniture in Howard City, Michigan (office located in Grand Rapids) under the name Skinner & Steenman Furniture Co. This company was one of the first to turn their production to a single article – sideboards. During the few years together this company grew from a small beginning to one of the largest manufacturers of sideboards in the world.
Hand-refinished and great brass hardware. This piece is just awesome and not too big, perfect for todays kitchens and fully functional.
Width is 62”, Height 47” and Depth is 21.5”
This great bookcase is fully functional and ready to add class to any living area.
Gunn stacking bookcases were distinguished by the lack of external side bands. The doors were hooked on slides and with the aid of a roller bearing, NOT the scissor-style assembly found on the Globe-Wernicke.
This still has the original wavy glass and part of the red GRM triangular logo. This logo represented the Furniture Manufacturer’s Association of Grand Rapids and was only used from 1899 to 1913.
Dimensions are: 47” Tall, 35” Wide, 12” Deep
