My grandfather and his family owned the company. I was searching for some family information on Yahoo and came across your question! I am not much help at the moment, my Dad had all the information on the company and he recently passed. I can tell you the company was located in NYC in the early half of the 1900's. If I can get further information, I will surely pass it on.

Courtade and Sons was a large New York family owned manufacturer in New York and, I beleive in Philadelphia as well.  They no longer manufacture, but Gemma Courtade (4th generation?) is still in the furniture business in New york.

I also have an inherited maple bedroom set by the same company : Courtade and Sons Colonial Reproductions, New York. Sounds like the same set and am also interested to find out about it.

I also inherited a bedroom set in tiger maple that my mother bought in the '30s.  It was in the corner window at B. Altman's displaying their very fine furniture.  I have a double size canopy bed, a highboy, the matching lowboy and a bedside table.  Has anyone discovered any information about Courtade?

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.
