The Widdicomb Furniture Company was formed in 1858 to1863 and then again on December 1, 1873 to 1915 (It changed the name in 1915 to incorporate another Name). In 1873, the company was reincorporated as Widdicomb Furniture Company. It made a variety of products and was listed as the largest maker of bedroom furniture in the world in 1891. The “cursive” style label in the top drawer was the trademark used by the company from 1903 to 1937.
Many examples of the American Empire Style still survive, exemplified by massive chests of drawers with .... with scroll feet. Elements of this style enjoyed a brief revival in the 1890s with, particularly, chests of drawers and vanities or dressing tables, usually executed in oak and oak veneers.
