Is this a Hoosier?

Or a Hoosier style cabinet? Or just an old cabinet?

I got it on Craigslist. There was a roll top in the middle part and two doors on the bottom, but they were missing when I bought it. One of the drawers is a metal bread box. It has a metal pull out surface above the 2 drawers. It was already painted, so I couldn't see any markings. The previous owner thinks it's from the early 1900s.

Any info is appreciated!

It's deja vu all over again!

Wouldn't that be a bizarre coincidence? Right after I posted I did a search and saw that my mom posted my question 2 weeks ago. Oops. :)


Too funny!

Let's say "Hoosier-esque"..
Would be nicer if the roll top and the doors weren't missing.

Well, now you all got to see how sad it was to start with. It looks much better now.
