Clarke Bros & Co. Victorian Furniture IDENTIFICATION
Hi all - I usually spend most of my time in the old houses forum since restoring the house is the biggest priority right now. But, recently, I picked up a small antique I would love to find out more about.
Check out the photos of both my little Victorian Ebonized Music Cabinet and the photos from the E & R Dubrow reference book on late American Made Victorian furniture. Luckily, I found my little cabinet in the book listed as item number 265 by the Clarke Bros. & Co. furniture makers. I cant find anything out about them and the book doesn't list any information on this company - like where they were located, when they were in existence, or likewise.
Here is a link to the photos of the cabinet and a page from the book:
I'm going to try to write to the publisher, Schiffer books, to see if they might be able to assist, but thought I'd throw this out to the GardenWeb community to see if any of you know anything about it.
