Estate Sale. The two Luce Furniture Co. Grand Rapids Mich. chairs still have their original manufacturing tags. No. 1235, order 6834. An 1897 ad in The Michigan Artisan lists Luce as a maker of chamber suites, sideboards, and chiffoniers, and claims that its factory has the largest capacity of any in the world. Its goods are listed in a 1900 Grand Rapids Herald article as bedroom furniture and sideboards in oak, birch, ash, and other woods. In 1904 - 1906, Luce's bedroom and dining suites were in oak and mahogany, with a decidedly English Arts and Crafts feel. In 1912 the company advertised itself as the largest shipper of Mission Dining Room furniture. Price is for both chairs.
