Well this is a good story. I will try to make short.A close friend called me and asked for my help. She needed someone to help clean and pack up things in a house in Eastlake,Ohio because they’re 90-year-old mother was going into a nursing home. I saw that sideboard and asked them how much do you want for it. They said if you can get it out of here it’s yours. The next day they brought the Mother over because she wanted to have closure to house. I was so glad to talk to her. I ask her about the sideboard and she said that was there when her and her husband bought this cottage/ house.She said they were 18 yrs old. She said before they bought house it was used to house players and families for the Cleveland Indians.
This is an early 20th century sideboard server that is done in the Jacobean or Renaissance Revival style. This would originally have been part of a dining set with table, chairs and a display cabinet. Though it is stamped Limbert (note, not Lambert) this piece would have been brokered through Charles Limbert's furniture company and not produced or designed by Limbert himself. The most desired pieces by Limbert are those done in quarter-sawn oak in quintessential Mission/Arts & Crafts style. This sideboard, though dating to the same era as Mission/Arts & Crafts furniture is done in the Jacobean Revival style and sells for significantly less than most Limbert furniture. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.
