My Napanee Dutch Cabinet belonged to my aunt who lived on Nelson Street in Lynn Massachusetts.   I believe she purchased it new in the 20’s.    I think it’s around 1924-27 based on images and advertising.   It came pretty much intact, only missing the Sugar bowl (though the lid was still there!) , the salt bowl, the coffee canister, the bread drawer cover, and the bottom pull out tray.   The paper is still there for the cookbook and extract areas.   I love and still use the flour bin! It has been a delight of many children helping me bake.   The finish is original, and the original roll up front still works.  Minor damages to the porcelain.  It’s one of my favorite things in my home!

My NAPANEE cabinet was originally white finish. It survived a house fire and the refinishers had to strip it. I’ve owned it since 1980 and I love it!!! I have 3 Hoosier cabinets and it is my favorite. I love the metal deep drawers with sliding covers. Could you date it’s manufacture ? 
Thanks for making functional and really great cabinets!!!

This Coppes Bros. & Zook cabinet was originally purchased by my grandfather, Ulysses S. Beach.  The original shipping label is still intact and legible on the back.  There is also a stenciled label which identifies the cabinet as a Model “4015 White.”  I assume that the “40” refers to the size of the cabinet since it is 40 inches wide, while the “15” may refer to some specific combination of features.  So far, however, I cannot find any Coppes catalog, literature or ad which refers to a Model 4015.  There is no built-in flour bin and no screw holes or other indication one was ever present.  The square Coppes Bros. badge just above the curtain/tambour suggests this unit was built between 1925 and 1930 (per the “Date Your Coppes Napanee Hoosier” page on this site).  Other than new casters the cabinet is still in original condition and now occupies a place of honor in the kitchen of my home (built in 1891 by my great-grandfather)
