  Stickley Brothers Furniture Company - Grand Rapids, Michigan  (1891-1947ca.)  In 1891, Albert Stickley and his youngest brother John George brought the Stickley Brothers name to Grand Rapids, Michigan, which was the center of American furniture-making.  John George eventually moved back East to found L. & J.G. Stickley, while Albert carried on.  Albert successfully transitioned to British-influenced Arts and Crafts furniture, marketed as Quaint during the early 1900s.  Beginning around 1910, Stickley Brothers began to shift production toward Colonial Revival.  Though Albert retired in 1927, the company continued until about 1947.
