Antique Martha Washington Sewing Cabinet - $250 (Spokane)

123456

condition: excellent
model name / number: Martha Washington Sewing Cabinet
size / dimensions: 27x14x29

Martha Washington Sewing Cabinet. Solid Mahogany with ornate inlaid detail.
The versions of this cabinet that mostly appear on the market today have three drawers and two flat top lids, which incorporated the "Soss" type invisible hinge, patented in November 1911, over the material compartments. Generally, they measure 27 inches wide, 14 deep, and 29 inches tall. In 1915, the Cowan Manufacturing Company of Toledo, Ohio, advertised their mahogany version for $12.50.

The quality of the 20th-century Martha Washington sewing cabinets ranges from those made of solid mahogany to cheaper models made of fruit wood (apple or pear), finished to look like mahogany. The better ones in good condition sell for around $150-$165 and finer examples can sell for as much as $500.
