American Arts & Crafts Furniture Collection
The Two Red Roses Foundation owns one of the largest collections of furniture from the Arts and Crafts Movement (1900-1920). Many of the objects, which number more than 250, are in original and pristine condition and often one-of-a-kind. In summer 2014 a complete catalogue of the collection, written by noted author and Arts and Crafts scholar David Cathers, will be available to the public. Among the designers and makers represented in the collection are Gustav Stickley, L. & J. G. Stickley, the Stickley Brothers, the Roycroft Shops, Charles Rohlfs, the Byrdliffe Colony, Rose Valley, John Bradstreet, and George Maher. Below are several examples from the furniture collection.
