Unlock the entire Houzz
Provenance of mystery buffet??
November 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Houzz experts!! Need some advice on this family heirloom. It is a buffet from my grandmother I believe, she was from the Bay Area California, lived in Berkeley when I knew her. She lived from ~1897 to ~ 1977. I think she and my grandfather had this in their house possibly dating from 1930s or 1940s? Any of you experts able to tell me what type of wood it's made of, the style and possibly how old is this buffet? It is a well travelled piece having followed me from California to Chicago to Australia in good shape!! The label on the back says "cathedral mahogany". Thanks all!! ~HerLadyship
