Bench made exact copy of a circa 1800 Sheraton mahogany tilt-top candle stand in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA. It bears the original label which states: American Museum Collection / NO M-532 / Tip Top Table / Sheraton (American) ca. 1800 / Museum of Fine Arts / Boston Massachusetts / 1938 Reproduction; the original metal tag of the maker, Johnson-Handley-Johnson Co of Grand Rapids, Michigan; and the signature of the cabinetmaker, J G M 582. It measures 29 inches high, 17.5 inches across and 38.5 inches high when in the tilt up position. Untouched original condition. Johnson Furniture was founded by three brothers who emigrated from Sweden in 1887: Carl (who had received a medal for his cabinetmaking skills from the King of Sweden), Hjalmar, and Axel. Tom Handley, who got his start at the prestigious firm of Waring and Gillow in London, became their in-house designer in 1908 and joined them as an officer in 1922. He continued to hold both positions until his untimely death in 1926. (1908-1983) Handley established Johnson and Johnson-Handley-Johnson as major producers of high-quality, period revival, residential furniture. The nature of Handley’s designs required the skills of hand craftsmen like Bohemian-born carver Joseph Heyda, and Austrian-born Frank Davidhazy, Sr., who created the floral, figural and classical designs that were painted on the surfaces of some case pieces. The Grand Rapids Public Museum has in its collections a large number of Johnson catalogs, original design drawings, and other archival materials ranging from the 1910s through the 1970s, as well as a good representation of its products from the same range of dates.
