Drop front bookcase/desk:    $117,500.00

MAKER: GUSTAV

This astonishing drop front secretary/bookcase speaks for the talent of its designer, Harvey Ellis. The symmetry of the cabinets, the cantilevered top and the dramatic arched apron combine to make this look as much like a building as a piece of furniture. Ellis had, in fact been trained in architecture and had a distinguished career working throughout the Midwest and in New York. This architectural background he enforced on his furniture design. The results are some of the most recognized American furniture forms. Ellis’s designs have been updated by Stickley, and a similar drop front bookcase with solid-panel doors (#89-0477) conveys the structural presence of its inspiration.
