Kohn & Sons Dining Set

TexBrenJuly 17, 2011

Hi:

I just purchased an antique dining set and I am trying to locate some info on it. I think it is probably 20s or 30s, because of the large carved legs, but I maybe wrong. I'm new to antiques - except the liking of them.

Anyway, on the underside of the table tob is a stencil that says S. Kohn & Sons Furniture. There is also a paper tag attached to the table base at the top that has some numbers and some words that I can't make out and the words furniture store.

If any one knows any thing about S. Kohn & Sons Furniture, please let me know. I will try to get a photo of the table, chairs and sideboard posted by tomorrow.

There is info all over the internet on S. Kohn and sons, a furniture manufactory located in Cleveland, Ohio. Here is one link you might enjoy reading. They've been at it for quite awhile and we'd love to see a picture of your set.

Here is one link with some personal history on its founder Solomon Kohn and below is another link about the store.
