I know nothing about furniture but I ran across your question while trying to get information on a bedroom set I have also made by Kensington.  I located two ads from the 1920's on eBay from the company which both have a photo of your cabinet.  If I'm reading the ads correctly, their furniture was made in NY and are Early English Oak reproductions. I can't seem to attach a photo so here are the ebay pages:

and

Otherwise, you can do search for the company's ads on eBay.  You mad need to search for "completed" listings.

I just purchased four chairs with this exact label. My thought 20-40's...Love the look dark carved ...may husband calls my style "Early Dungeon"....My Mother having just passed away at 96 had an antique shop in New Jersey for 55 years, same shop.  I am not a dealer just gathered knowledge from my Mother along the way.
