    BAKER FURNITURE (a collector's choice No. 1602 Table).
    Both Baker furniture and the Labor Day holiday trace their roots to the late 1800s.
    During its early years, a regatta of hardwood logs floating down the rivers and lakes of western Michigan allows Dutch immigrant craftsmen, like Siebe Baker, to become the cabinetmakers of the New World. Following in 1920's an educated man, Hollis Baker envisioned a kind of furniture largely unknown in this country - fashionable, collectible and superbly crafted resembling original antiques. In most cases they were as good or better than the originals.
    As recently as today, I came across an original BAKER FURNITURE (a collector's choice No. 1602 Table). Originally from an early Queen Anne table circa 1730, this desk desk has round tapper-ed legs and padded feet. The desk, measuring 22 inches wide, 17 inches deep and 24 inches tall, is made of maple and has a lovely patina.
