Acme Kitchen Furniture Company Grain Painted Double Mirror Door Wardrobe/Armoire
This Acme Kitchen Furniture Company Grain Painted Double Mirror Door Wardrobe/Armoire, circa 1916, hails from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Upon researching this company we came across a 1911 January product catalogue that sums up Acme's customer commitment, ”There is a point where cheapness in construction ceases to be economy! We guarantee our goods to be satisfactory. If they are not right in finish, quality of workmanship or material, send them back at our expense.”
Constructed out of solid wood this Acme Kitchen Furniture Company Wardrobe has the original grain paint that looks like quarter sawn tiger oak, a distinctive crown, decorative applied carvings above the original French beveled mirrors and embellished applied carvings on the skirt and front feet. This classic wardrobe is in the original grain painted finish and has the original key escutcheons and locks that open to reveal a painted white empty interior, so the piece can be retrofitted to include hanging space or shelving. The drawers below have the original wooden knobs and offer additionl storage space. The Acme Kitchen Furniture Company Grain Painted Double Mirror Door Wardrobe/Armoire has paneled sides, a paneled back, measures, 79.00 inches H X 49.50 inches W X 19.00 inches D, and has the original metal label that states, "The Factory Guarantees The Quality, Acme, Chattanooga, Tennessee, and a paper label that reads, "From Acme Kitchen Furniture Co., Chattanooga, Tenn."
