I am restoring my newly purchased Marsh Kitchen Cabinet,(Hoosier type,) It was made in 1949 and is a #659. I need door handles, the "Marsh" logo plate on front, the plate of glass in the middle cabinet and the decorative piece of wood that ran across the top. I would also like to find an original advertisement if at all possible. I have contacted Marsh Co. and they have provided me with all the info that they could. The pics they sent me were from an old catalog but were in black and white and didn't include prices, etc.

Please, If anyone has any idea where I can find these pieces, let me know! I have "googled" it and looked all over the web with no luck! I was also wondering if this cabinet came with sugar/flour/tea jars or wire racks or anything of that nature like the Hoosier cabinets did.

Thank you for your time!

Does anyone have any info on a Boone jelly cupboard? I bought one recently & am interested in learning more about it. I found some history online about the company but was curious to see what others' pieces look like. Thanks!

The cabinet was bought in Brady Texas by my great grandmother. My mother acquired it from the estate a few years ago, gave it to my sister. She sanded the paint off and decided I needed it.
It is in pristine condition. It was before she sanded the paint off. Aghhhh! I would like to repaint it the original Ivory and Green. But need to see a picture. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
if you email the marsh co and attach pictures of your cabinet, they will try and help you with info. i did that this past week, and jim marsh has been researching mine. i got an email today saying it's and 1936 cabinet and that he will try and email me a scanned photo of it!

I also would like to get the original stencil so I can restore it. Does anyone else have one with a red rubber insert on a wooden pull out where everone else has a porcelin work top?

I just bought a top of a hoosier cabinet and can't find any info on it anywhere! I know it's got to be early (possibly 1930's) due to the art deco, but I am at a loss as to what brand or anything. Help!
I have a photo I can send. Thanks!

Looking for a Marsh (Hoosier type) Cabinet Tag for the front of my Marsh Cabinet. Mine is in excellent original shape, including the black and red stencil design on the glass door...but it's missing the Marsh label on the front. I also have the matching single cabinet.

I recently aquired a green and ivory hoosier type cabinet and need help identifying it. The upper portion left top is a tip out flour bin/sifter, the right upper portion has two doors which open to reveal a shelf area. just below these is a roll top area, below the flour bin is a door that opens to reveal the bottom of the sifter. There is an enamel (white with green edge) pull out shelf/work area that separates this section from the bottom. The bottom left 1/2 is a single door, and the bottom right has a deep metal drawer, and two smaller top drawers. The only markings on it is 14.22 green ivory on the back (it could also be 4.22 green ivory). I do have pics but could not figure out how to post them. [email protected]

I recently bought a Sellers Tempo Deluxe cabinet and I would like to find some pictures so I can restore it. I believe it is from 1935-36, because I have found 1 black and white ad for this cabinet. It has 2 doors in the top with a flour sifter behind the left, a porceliron top, and 2 drawers over 2 doors on the bottom.

I have my mothers hosier.It has roll top with 2 doors that open. It sits on a porcelin tabletop that states stainless steel. The bottom has a large door to the left with a wire reack inside. To the right of the door is 2 drawers. I believe the top drawer is small and the bottom is larger and metal for possibly flour. The wheels on it are wood. The emblem on the cabinet are black and silver. The knobs are red with white in the middle. The tag on the back reads: Square Brand, The Chittenden & Eastman Co. Manufacturersand wholsae dealers in furniture. Burlington, Iowa.

Are there any design features that are specific to each make of cabinet? I have a cabinet that I, like many others , am trying to identify. I have scoured the internet with no luck. It looks like a couple of Hoosier models and some Boone models also.

The top portion has two doors to the right that house shelves. Below them is a tambour rolling door. To the left is a tilt out flour bin with a separate door below. The porcelain top is white with red trim. The bottom portion has three drawers to the right, the top two being shallow and the bottom tin drawer much deeper. The left has one large door with a metal shelf. It sits on metal casters. The back has a string of numbers and letters ending in the word 'red.'

It was painted green when I bought it. I have stripped it to reveal a layer of white and the hinges appear to be red. I am trying to determine the make and approximate age, but more importantly the original color scheme.

I will try to post a picture.

Thank you for your assistance.

I have a Coppes Brothers and Zook Model J that was my grandmothers. I think it was built between 1915-17. I am restoring it. Trying to find cabinet hinges and handles etc. Can't find the exact replacement hinges on the internet. Hinges were made by N.L. Co. Rockford which I think is National Lock but not sure. Any idea where I can find the proper hinges? I am also trying to find someone who can brass plate my hinges which are rusty but having a hard time with that too.

Also the interior of the top portion is now painted. Is that the way they were made? Any idea what color it should be? This looks like a real light greenish white.
