Hello
Thank you for making your question to JustAnswer. My name is*****'m an Antiques Expert and I will try to help you with your particular inquiry. Please, don't hesitate to contact me any time or to make follow up questions if needed.

Could you provide a picture of any metal part-nail, screws..etc-of the furniture?

Also, could you inspect the furniture to try to locate the manufacturer label or mark if present?

Thanks

Hello,

Tell City Chair Company was founded in 1865 under the name "Chair Maker's Union"; they changed the name to Tell City Chair Co in 1924. The company however did not begin manufacturing dining room furniture until 1954; thus your hutch would be at least no older than 1954.

Feel free to add images at your convenience, there is not an additional charge for photos here.
