Hi, i believe my great grand father made this cabinet. He lived in Philadelphia. Can anyone tell me anything about it, like style, time period, value, etc?

I think the style is Frence Provincial.and does not appear to be of the era you suggest.

RE: China cabinet

When did your great-grandfather live?

And do you have any reason to believe he was a furniture maker.

On this one, I agree with Texas Redhead ... you have a vintage French Provincial china cabinet and buffet. Probably late 1950s through 1970s, and very probably made in a factory.

Have you examined it for maker's marks?

RE: China cabinet

I'm gonna say those two pieces do not go together . The top is much to small for the bottom . The bottom was the server and the top would have a bottom that was more proportionate to the it. The top section with the appropriate bottom , would create a "china/buffet "
It looks to be a " standard " factory made piece . Not sure it's as old as you think or family made .

RE: China cabinet

The big bottom/small top thing was a midcentury thing, though. Usually on modern stuff of course and not frenchy stuff, but it could be like that due to the MCM influence.

-fori <--who has been looking for a midcentury china cabinet for way too long :)

RE: China cabinet

Thanks all! He was a furniture maker in Philadelphia, born 1893, but he did not make this piece. I asked some other family who confirmed that lol. I also found a stamp on the back that said White Furn Co 600 689

Guess they were a SC company that did a lot of this stuff. Sorry to waste your time but i wasn't given correct information the first time around from family.

Thanks again! :)

RE: China cabinet

White Furniture Company made some good pieces.
