All the original labels present, with coordinating stamps…aaah, the stories! I researched the manufacturer, Youngsville Star Mfg. Co., based in Pennsylvania. Their main choice of wood was cherry, and at one point even were requested to make a custom set for General MacArthur at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
This set was just asking to have that cherry surface refinished, so I grabbed my favorite sander and went to town.
Question: Why, oh why do people line drawers with contact paper? I’ll never know. Check out the rockin’ polka dots.
