History of Royal Furniture Company, Grand Rapids, MI

What can you tell me about the history of the Royal Furniture Company, Grand Rapids, MI.? I recently purchased a beautiful mahogany bookcase with glass doors and 4 shelves. On the inside of one of the doors , there is a small medallion with a picture of George Washington. The piece has a metal plate on the back that lets me know that it was sold through Stern Brothers in New York City.

Hello,  I also have acquired a bookcase with your same description...only it looks like the metal plate had been removed & a paper piece that says "from Pogue Cincinnati" on it was put in its place.  Do you have a wooden inset design on the glass doors? 

I have the same bookcase that has been passed down in the family.  Would LOVE to know some history of this piece.
