The History of Craftsmanship
During the 1890's, wicker manufacturers competed with each other to come up with innovative and distinctive furniture styles. Over 100 years later those pieces have withstood the test of time. Quality construction as well as properly proportioned designs, have left us with exquisite examples of the wicker craftsmen's artistry. Manufacturers such as The Heywood Brothers & Wakefield Co., A.H. Ordway, Colt Willow Ware Works, Karpen, Jos. P. McHugh, Ficks Reed and Gustav Stickley, to name a few, are all known for their distinctive designs and are synonymous with quality American wicker furniture. Today these pieces are highly sought after along with skilled craftspeople - like our staff at the Collected Works - to provide expert and proper restoration. Whatever your needs may be or if you have a question about classic or antique furniture, please give us a call.
