|Comment||Thank you, Fred for your quick response. I guess my Grandad was right, your estimate puts this piece about 4 years older than him at the latest. I figured it was probably from the economy line due to the wooden pulls, and now the lack of a prospect door. But that's ok with me! It's already 100 years old- you can't get anything like that at IKEA, no matter how cheap. And it's a great concept! So compact and useful. Thank you again.|

I will attempt to answer questions about American antique furniture, including construction details, style, period, manufacturers, care, repair and storage. I do not have any background in appliances, musical instruments, sewing machines, trunks, lighting, clocks or children's and baby furniture and will not respond to questions about those items.
I ran an antique furniture restoration business for twenty years. I am a nationally syndicated columnist on the subject of antique furniture for such publications as Antique Week and New England Antiques Journal. I have produced one video on the subject of furniture identification and my book "HOW TO BE A FURNITURE DETECTIVE" is now available.I have also published articles in Antique Trader, Chicago Art Deco Society, Northeast Magazine, Victorian Decorating and Lifestyles, Professional Refinishing, Antiques and Art Around Florida and Antique Shoppe.
