Good Morning from Dusty Old Thing! Don’t you just love seeing all the variety of cabinets that our readers have posted? This morning we’re featuring three that appear to come from the late 19th or early 20th centuries. Several come with requests for more information. Can you provide any insight into where the pieces may have been made or an approximate date?
We’re also including a simple antique, or vintage, bookshelf with a wonderful art pottery collection–including Roseville.
from Lisa Eichhorn: “I inherited this cabinet from my Grandfather who bought it at an estate sale in 1934 for my Grandmother as a gift. He said “they brought it over on the boat.” Not sure what boat, but would love to know more about it. Could be English or Scandinavian. Anyone seen one like this? It also has all my Grandmother’s Fostoria she collected with Green stamps piece by piece. It’s my favorite piece in my house.“
from: Jolene Goebel Schorg: “Does anyone know anything about this piece of furniture? I bought it at my parent’s estate sale, but I know little about it, other than it came from eastern Iowa.”
from: Kelly Scarborough: “200 YEARS OLD.. WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHERE IT WAS MADE. STILL HAS ONE ORIGINAL PIECE OF GLASS”
from: Christina Polites: “Here’s a few pieces of American Pottery that I have collected over the years, most are around the 1930s & 40s,some are from my mother & some I found @ flea markets,I really love the Roseville the most!~”
