Welcome to Deanie’s Stash, this is the place I like to share vintage finds and give you more information about those finds. If you are new here, thank you for stopping by. If you are a frequent visitor, thank you for reading this. Today we have the second installment of vintage furniture that we find and keep or sell. The first post about vintage furniture was A Piece of Furniture with a Secret Past. Today we will show you the five pieces of vintage furniture we found at an estate sale last weekend. Here we showed you the vintage junk treasures we found that same weekend.
This beautiful dresser has leaves & nut carved handles. We believe this dresser is from the late 1800s. The little drawers were used for gloves, handkerchieves and other small items. When examining this piece of furniture there was no indication that there was an attached mirror.
This antique dresser is a very solid piece of furniture that could be used for another hundred plus years.
This second piece of vintage furniture is a desk. This style can be called drop front, slant front or fall-front. There are shelves below for books.
This piece was probably made in the first quarter of the 1900s. It has some nice cubbies and a small drawer. It is a pretty piece of furniture and could be used nowadays with a laptop. There is plenty of room for a laptop or tablet plus some office supplies. A nice feature of this kind of desk is that it can sit in your living room and when not in use be closed. I love the ring pull on this desk, a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
This parlor or lamp table is a nice piece from the early 1900s. This would make a nice plant stand or side table.
This piece of furniture is a mid-century music or record cabinet. You will notice there is a bubble in the veneer on the top. Mr. Deanie has already fixed that. He was able to get glue under it and get it down flat. The inside has 2 of the original shelves inside. This piece would be a great end or side table.
This is what I have always referred to as a humidor. But after research I have found that I should actually call it a cabinet humidor. It is also referred to as a smoking stand. The reason it is a humidor is it has a lined section to keep the cigars and tobacco had a constant temperature. Many times these are lined with copper.
The finish of the wood is pretty poor. We are contemplating painting the piece. This little drawer on the side is super! It originally would have an ashtray and some other pieces as you can see 3 small holes. I think this would be a neat side table as you could use the pullout for you beverage.
Unfortunately this humidor section has been painted. Mr. Deanie has begun to strip the paint and it is lined with metal. It will be a nice piece of furniture when Mr. Deanie is done with it. We will show the after at a later date.
These five pieces of furniture will be for sale at one of the antique malls in the future.
Thank you for reading this, we really appreciate it.
Wishing you a great time finding your own vintage treasures.
Wishing you many blessings in your life in 2018.
