Somebody gave me this cabinet because they thought I might want the doors. Which I do, but it’s a shame this piece got left out in the elements for so long. At one point I think it could have been salvaged.
As it is I may use it as a template to make another one like it.
I don’t think it can be salvaged because most of the veneer is separated from the blockboard and most the frame is warped.
I found the name of the manufacturer on the back and by Googling that I found an issue of Fine Furniture from August 1937 that had a photo of it.
There are some slight differences in that this one has a base moulding and the photo shows feet. Also, I don’t see dental mouling in the photo and the lower doors are a little different. But the photo says it is model 443 and this one is marked 369 so maybe this one was an earlier model.
Cool find. I wish I had found it sooner.
