We picked up this 20s buffet on craigslist (like most of my projects). It had been touched up and the finish was dark and heavy. I stripped most of it using only acetone and a toothbrush, but some of the newer finish wouldn't dissolve and I had to use stripper.
The back is stamped " Basic Furn. Co." & "NO.673 (or 073) N.B.HALL" with the date "12-2-28 _63"written in chalk.
I have many more pictures here: http://s292.photobucket.com/user/gforce1108/library/20s%20buffet
I just haven't loaded the good ones from my camera - just my phone
The pictures I've uploaded here are the "before", side by side comparison of a stripped drawer, drawer pull and "after" (horrible picture).
*** update! Found a set of exact same drawer pulls today on eBay. Couldn't believe it :) I'll use the extra ones on the next project ***
