It has a number on the back Top that is 4058 white en, Black & Gold, the bottom cabinet says white en Black trim. It has two large doors with a flour ben/sifter in the top. The bottom has four drawers , one of them is tin lined , there is also a cutting board and two doors.
I found this beauty at la thrift store. The flour bin has been removed and the roll too was removed. Otherwise it’s in a great condition
Buying this for $50. So excited!! Don’t know anything about it though
Purchased from a friend whose father in law said it had been in his family as long as he could remember. It had been painted at least four times. The flour bin is gone. I believe it was built in the 1920s. It has the blue Napanee label on it. We stripped the paint. The original paint was gray and there were flowers painted on the doors. We replaced the back of the top and bottom, but kept the part that was stamped that it is Model G.
Manufactured by Mutschler Furniture in Nappanee. My mother was a housekeeper for Mr Mutschler and he gave her the Hoosier cabinet as a wedding gift. At the same time my father purchased a matching Hoosier table with a enamel top that matched the cabinet top. The year was 1936.
This was my Great Great Grandmas cupboard. Bought for her by my Great Grandma. Restored to its original finish by my Dad and passed on to me!
I purchased this recently and would like to restore it, but not sure if it’s a Boone, a Hoosier, a McDougall…??? Help! On the bottom of the enamel countertop, it reads “Enameliron, December 1941”
Any help will be much appreciated!
I fell in love with this cabinet the first time I saw it. I dont know much as to year or identity. It’s perfect for me to show off part of my covered animal dishes. The drawer on the right is metal on the inside with a sliding top. For sugar or flour?
I got my Hoosier Cabinet a couple months ago, from a couple who were moving and downsizing. My husband and I have added the spice carousel. He has bought the parts to make the Tambour doors, which are missing. I can’t wait to decorate it for Christmas.
This Sellers Hoosier cabinet was owned by my paternal grandmother in the 1920’s in Oak Park, IL and was passed down to my parents in the 1970’s in Riverside, IL. It has all original hardware, though no longer has the roll top or flour bin. It had been painted various colors over the years, but was stripped and restored to white, which is the color I recall it being in my grandmother’s kitchen.
I am currently looking for a historical site in which to donate this gem.
