I have no idea, but it was a decent craftsman, the fit and finish is quite good. Its a very hard cherry wood, you can tell it was well thought thru.
Ha ha, you can, but would it change your thoughts if you knew that table served as a transition from my kitchen area to dining room? Again, I have strange taste in decor but folks that see my home say it works. You'd never think a bedroom cabinet like that would work in that spot but it seems to. Anyway, the copper pot and wooden Scandinavian cheese plate do fit the space. I have some Delft blue pottery I can place there, I haven't tried it.

That rug is an Afgnan tribal, I can take some pics of it. Its a nice rug but not terribly valuable. The most valuable carpet I have it shredded to shit, its a Ferahan Sarouk from the 1880's and is worth thousands. My father (useless) suggested I throw it away. I love that carpet, it has tons of character.
