This is a model of “Hoosier” sold by Montgomery Wards in the 30s.
It is larger than typical, this one is 5’ wide and most run 4’ or less.
Since it is poplar, we are going to repaint it, in colors simular to a picture of another MW hoosier we found on the internet. We are attempting to salvage the original hardware but its pitted pretty bad, so we will see how it comes out.
Overall this is in very good condition considering its age. It has never been repainted, the doors are apart due to the plywood panels buckling, but we will be inserting some sort of textured glass anyway, and other than a few bits to tighten and reglue, most of the work will be sanding and repainting.
Thanks for looking, I’m so excited about this project, I’ve wanted a hoosier for a long time. It will be my sewing center. (This was my 36th anniversary present…....does my husband know me or what??!!) Marilyn
