Arguably the most striking is this secretary desk, Early American in style.
Where was the furniture marked? In turning the piece over, there's the identifying number along with the French company name abbreviated, handpainted; a much smaller metal tag with the same information; and finally, the tag from the company it was purchased from, one D. A. French, Inc. Whether this was a relative of Fred French is anyone's guess.
While most of the furniture was of solid, no-nonsense construction, a few pieces offered some filagree.
Early American was the style at the time, and would continue to reign until the 1960s. Above, a 1930 ad for Hotel Tudor bills the furnishings over the room itself.
