This Aesthetic Movement bedroom suite has popped up on Ebay and is labeled via stamp to be made by W. W. Strong Co. of Chicago, Illinois.  The seller has some other provenance to share with us on the set:

The set was purchased from the Galesburg, Illinois Historical Society.  It was supposedly part of the furnishings from the Lakeshore Drive home of the  Potter Palmer family of Chicago.  The bed is nearly queen size in width all of the pieces have Egyptian motif painted panels.  The set is in wonderful original condition with no repairs.  there is a shrinkage  crack in the headboard of the bed that can easily be pulled back together.

More photos and bidding at the listing.
