Hi, we finally got down to Regina and picked up the mantel and took it to the cabin. I love it, it will look great once we get it installed. We are very happy with our purchase and the smooth transaction.

C1905 Signed Gustav Stickley Mahogany Safecraft bookcase / cabinet. This Arts + Crafts cabinet is rare, still in awesome condition and good original finish. The cabinet pictured and well documented in The Gustav Stickley after 1909 Craftsman Furniture & Safecraft Catalog. As written this cabinet is a combination of a high grade safe made by Herring-Hall Marvin of New York being fire proof and thief proof with a combination lock which still works nicely. They were experts in providing protection for your valuables and papers in the home or office against burglars and fire back in the day. The beauty of Safecraft furniture appeals to the most artistic eye and was made under the personal direction of the master of furniture builders Gustav Stickley. This cabinet consists of the removable upper two door bookcase section having three adjustable Mahogany shelves inside and finished with two beautiful 8 pane glazed doors. The base cabinet encloses the original safe hidden nicely inside. All of the original Arts + Crafts hand wrought metal drop pulls key escutcheons hinges and heavy straps are complete and in very nice condition
