Does anyone know anything about the John Vogler Group Furntiture company? I have a solid cherry drop leaf dining table that is stamped with that name. I can't find anything on google. I also have the china hutch and 5 chairs.

Can you post a link to pictures?

"John Vogler" or Vogle was a famous North Carolinan ... it may have been made as a copy of something from the Vogler house.

I have no idea how to post pictures. I just have them on my computer, not on any website.

I, too, have some furniture from the John Vogler Group. The makers of the suite were known as "Unique Furniture Makers" of Winston-Salem, NC.
As near as I can tell, our hutch, buffet, and table and chairs were delivered to my wife's grandparents house in West Simsbury, CT in the late 1950s or early 1960s.
The Unique Furniture Makers went out of business in the 1970s (according to some websites). John Vogler was apparently a famous North Carolinian from the early days of the US.

I have a China Cabinet(I took the little wire decrotive things out of the glass windows in hutch, still have them, just did not like the look), Dresser,two night Stands and a large mirror that are made by this same company. I recently took photos to an antique shop and was told (even though I have a original tag off the furniture) that its to modern to be that old??? I'm lost on this, this furniture is in awesome shape, so I feel as though she thought I was lieing. How do I find more information on this company? Here's a photo of the Hutch, will add photo of tag soon.

Not sure what you are asking....you have furniture that looks like late 1960's or early 1970's furniture. The tag is one of those old IBM punch cards....the forerunner of our modern computer. There is no date on that card but the year the factory was established.
