Slate Top Mahogany Cabinet
Attributed to Johnson Furniture for Directional Industries
When Earl Johnson retired and the family sold the company in 1963, it was purchased by a group of investors led by James Van Oosten. Milo Baugham and Kipp Stewart designed lines of residential furniture, which Johnson produced for Directional Industries between 1963 and 1968. After being owned by Holiday Inns, Inc. between 1968 and 1975, the company returned to the ownership of Van Oosten and company. In 1963, Johnson became the sole manufacturer of case goods and occasional furniture for Directional Industries.
A fine example of high quality craftsmanship. Most likely made by Johnson Furniture for Directional Industries. Solid mahogany doors feature carved panels in a bold X pattern. Double doors on the left open to reveal a storage area with one adjustable shelf. Door on the right opens to 5 drawers for storage. Finished in a rich dark (nearly ebony) finish over mahogany. Topped with 1" thick slate which can be removed. Accented with original brushed brass hardware.
Excellent Vintage Condition with very little wear. See photos which depict some rubs and scraps along the bottom. Chip to slate on one corner and light marks/scratches on the right side. Slate may be removed (cabinet top is finished but may need some reviving). Otherwise remarkably clean and nice especially when considering age.
Measurements: 53.5"W x 18.5"D x 35.25"H
Slate removes for crating.
