    A GREENE & GREENE PLANT STAND FROM THE FREEMAN A. FORD HOUSE, PASADENA, CALIFORNIA
    Designed by Charles Sumner Greene & Henry Mather Greene, Made by Peter and John Hall, Pasadena, California, circa 1906-1908
    13 x 10 x 9-3/4 inches (33.0 x 25.4 x 24.8 cm)

    Provenance:
    Mr. and Mrs. Freeman A. Ford, Pasadena, California

    The fumed oak stand having a green marble inset top, set on four shaped panels with box joints and exposed contrasting pegs, each panel with two rectangular cut-outs to center and stepped triangle cut-out to base.

    Charles and Henry Greene designed the Ford House and its custom furnishings, which were produced by the master cabinet makers Peter and John Hall. The Ford house is one of five large scale bungalows in the Craftsman style designed by the Greenes, referred to as an Ultimate Bungalow, a term popularized by its use as a chapter title in the 1977 book Greene & Greene: Architecture as a Fine Art by Randell L. Makinson.
