Vintage Drexel: When was this made?

Posted by onmiown3 (My Page) on

Hi All,

I recently purchased a Drexel bow front mahogany china cabinet. I was told that it was part of the Travis Court Collection, produced in the 1940s.

Now that it has been delivered to my home, I see that the back of it is labeled "Travis Court Treasury" and not "Travis Court Collection". Through my research I am aware that Drexel produced the Travis Court Collection in the late 40s and also introduced a line called the "New Travis Court Collection" sometime in the 1950s. However, I am unable to find anything on the "Travis Court Treasury".

Can anyone help me identify when this line was made? The ID number on the furniture is 9352-3. The ID number also concerns me because every photograph I've seen of the Travis Court Collection or the New Travis Court Collection had a 4 digit identifer (xxx-x) and not a 5 digit number.

Thanks!
Kim

Your best bet is to probably write to Drexel Heritage & find out if they have any records.
