The information regarding the PLANCOR is a statement of ownership, not of manufacture.  PLANCOR was a U.S. government term coined by the Defense Plant Corporation (a subsidiary of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation) to uniquely identify projects that supported WWII.  An index of PLANCORS may be available from the U.S. Archives ( ).

I'm guessing it's an inventory tag. I also have a tag like this. My numbers are different. They are 33 5 1. My tag is on an old wooden case that holds a Bausch & Lomb microscope. I know this doesn't exactly answer your question, but maybe it'll help solve the puzzle.

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.
