    I am wondering if any one can tell me about this China Cabinet. I had bought it to put some extra Art Glass in it. I think it is old as the glass in it has a wave to it. Has notched areas inside to move the shelves. The lock appears to be Brass but I have no Key for it. At the back of it is like panel boards (quarter saw cut??). Not sure of age, maker, what it is called (if it is a china cabinet) or the type of wood. I just needed it for my Glass....LOL

    Any info on this is greatly appreciated.....if you need more pics, let me know

      It is made of hard pine. Despite the name it is not a hardwood it is a softwood. Also known as yellow pine and long leaf pine (even though pine doesn't bear a leaf). The long leaf pine name comes from it having the longest needles of the pine family. To make it a bit more clear, softwood has needles and hardwood has a broad leaf. One is coniferous and the other deciduous. I would agree that this is probably 50's or later. There were lots of pieces made from hard pine and if taken care of it really stands up to the test of time. The pine was more available and cost much less than using hardwood. The fact that it is pine does not for a minute detract from it, quite the opposite. Try finding something today that isn't particle board and contact paper. Back in the day hardware stores, gov't offices, the town clerk, the public library etc. all bought these because of two things. They were well built and less expensive.
