One hundred years ago, when people wanted to listen to music at home, they cracked their knuckles and headed for the piano. This small cabinet was originally intended to store sheet music, and although times have changed, it is a nice, small-scale piece of furniture. The overall form is appealing, and much of the charm is in the details. The exposed through-tenons in the cabinet often are seen in Gustav Stickley furniture, but the joinery in the door is unusual. The mitered intersections on the door are authentic to early Stickley pieces, but within a few years these joints disappeared from production.
