Can someone please help identifyI? I was given this for free and I don’t know who makes?
It is a 70's mens armoire. Many furniture makers made them in the 1970's. I would repair and use. It would look beautiful with new handles and painted.
Have you checked the bottom and inside well for a manufacturer mark of some sort?
Ty Yes I found it’s made by Sumter SC Cabinets. However I did photo search as well and I can’t find what line or value?
Hi France's It looks like everything from the 70's, looks nice for storage though, I would paint it a nice color and use it! I prefer chalk paint, I think it would look great in a slate blue or something!
Ty and I did find was made by Sumter SC cabinet co. I plan on refurbishing.
So I looked your picture up on Google images and tons of very similar armoires come up. There were too many for me to sift through, but it you do the same you might find the exact piece or something similar that will lead you to the manufacturer. Also, check the bottom of the drawer.
ty I did the same and had no luck in finding one like it. However I will keep looking.
It's an armoire from the 70's. A lot of companies made them. May be a tag or sticker on the back or bottom.
Hello occasionally vintage furniture of this era sometimes there is a stenciled painted identification. Look to the unfinished areas to see if theres this marking.
Ty I found the manufacture Sumter Cabinets but can’t find what line or value
I'm not sure who makes it, but it's a great piece. I love it. You can always do a photo search in google and see if you can find information that way.
It appears to be a late 70's or early 80's piece to me. My sister had something very similar and it was purchased around 1978.
Ty for your response it’s Sumter cabinet
you may be able to find the manufacturer name on bottom of the drawers or back of the unit
Hi and Ty I did find the manufacture. Sumter Cabinets however I can’t seem to find what style or value on this piece. I’ve find photo and went through som many pictures but couldn’t find one like it.
did you send the photo to the mfg company? if you sent an email and photos I am sure they could help you out
Tysm for your help.🙂 William found me the info.
Look on bottom or some other hidden spot. High quality furniture usually has a brand, but lower cost mass-produced furniture may not. I brand, date, and sign EVERY piece I make.
Ty for the response. Yes I found it and I have searched by photo but can’t seem find what line it falls under and what the value is?
Ty I did find the manufacture. Sumter cabinet but still can’t seem to find one like it. I would like to know what line and value
Value is what it is worth to you unless you are trying to sell it. I would look for matching hardware and/or replace all with a similar style. Enjoy your cabinet.
Your Man's Door Chest was manufactured by the Sumter Cabinet Company of Sumter, South Carolina probably in the 1970s. The piece is sturdily constructed of oak with carvings and heavily ornate hardware. I don't remember the name of the collection but it was considered "continental" in style with design motifs from european (Mediterranean) style furniture that also incorporated the heavy American oak colonial look that was popular in the 70s. Your chest should be marked with a stamped or embossed triangle shaped logo of Sumter Cabinet Company. btw...the bottom drawer would be the drawer with the carving on the front. Hope this helps.
You I found the logo ty so much for responding. Would you happen to know how I got about finding pricing?
I think value/price is determined by how badly someone else wants the piece or how valuable it is to you. Sadly, even high-end vintage furniture sells for pennies on the dollar at auctions if the style is not on trend. I've bought pieces that originally sold for thousands for $less than $100 at many auctions. The condition of your chest and the age as well as style, make it a good piece but not a highly sought after or unique item. Typically would sell for between $50 to $100 at an auction/flea market/thrift shop. Online, to specific buyers, it might bring as much as $200 (but probably much less if missing a drawer & hardware). I found one identical chest in better shape, that sold online for $80. You have a nice quality and sturdy piece made from solid wood so it is certainly worth repairing. Good luck!
Baxter tysm🙂 I agree and it sad how it looses such value. I think I will refurbish and keep. Again tysm
Could be Arts & Crafts, Spanish or Jacobian style. Might be worth investigating further!
I did find a logo but still I can’t seem to find any info. The company has closed and I and searched the Internet for another one like it no luck. Sumter SC Cabinet. I just can’t to find info or maybe I’m not searching correctly? Also did photo search and no luck.
Thank you all for the response
Try the Internet eBay and the like, for used carved furniture. One English manufacturer comes to mind "Old Charm" for similar pieces. Best of luck!
Based on Ebay Sumter Cabinets about $500.
OMG!!! Thank you so much!!!🤗🤗
I have the complete bed room suite of this. Dresser with 2 mirrors, armoire, king bed and 2 bed side chests. Bought the set in the early 70s. Think the collection was named Singer. Massive and extremely heavy.
I would not paint it, clean it up as best you can it looks in pretty good shape the wood is beautiful. Everyone wants to paint everything now a days I do not understand why when you have a georgeous piece of wood furniture that you can’t buy any more.
if you p ain’t in 10 year’s you’ll want to strip it back to the wood.
I would just clean it up like someone else said and if you can maybe restore to its original. I found a picture that looks like yours:
That's BEAUTIFUL. 😉👌👍🥂
