I have had this chair for a few years now, very sturdy and in great condition. Measures 36'' tall by 25'' at the widest (outside of the arms) by about 22'' deep.

Made by the Barber Brothers Chair Company of Hastings, Michigan, and co-branded by Grand Rapids Bookcase Company of Grand Rapids, Michigan, probably about the time that these 2 companies merged, around 1910-1911. Further research has revealed that these companies produced the Lifetime line of mission-style furniture, and I believe this to be an early example.

Leather seat in very good condition, and I believe it to be original.

Stickley, Lifetime, Roycroft, Limbert
