Though crafted in the Arts and Crafts style, this sideboard was produced on an assembly line using steam-powered machinery. Handmade furniture was too expensive for most consumers, so the firm of Gustav Stickley used methods of mass production to make its furniture affordable while maintaining the look and quality of handmade pieces. As a result Stickley became one of the largest and most prolific American manufacturers of Arts and Crafts-style furniture.
