Edison Little Folks Furniture Company Maple Chifforobe
This Maple Chifforobe hails from the Edison Little Folks Furniture Company in New London, Wisconsin; a company that got its start in 1891 as Andrae Manufacturing Company; however the company was purchased in 1917 by the famous inventor, Thomas A. Edison, who changed the name to Edison Wood Products, Incorporated. Edison was looking for a company to produce wooden phonograph cabinets, and when that market declined Edison Wood Products began manufacturing infant furniture in 1937 under the name of Little Folks Furniture. This Edison Little Folks Furniture Company Maple Chifforobe was built in the late 1930's, and because it had hanging space and so much drawer space, it was marketed as the perfect piece to accommodate children's clothing. Constructed out of maple, this chifforobe has primarily straight-lined features with nicely curved side top edges that add just the right finishing touch. The Edison Little Folks Furniture Company Maple Chifforobe has the original decoratively incised handles, the original hanging bar, original solid brass hinges, original Edison Little Folks Furniture Company label, original stamped model number, measures, 42.75 inches H X 38.00 inches W X 16.00 inches D, and has been professionally restored.
