What year did Flint...

What year did Flint & Horner Co. stop manufacturing furniture

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have a complete 5 piece Bedroom set with Flint & Horner Co. labels in Near-Fine Condition, I'm 90% certain based on my experience, but there are just a few small nuances they cause me to be a little suspect.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

That is why i asked what year [they] stop manufacturing furniture under "Flint & Horner Co." brand.

I have pictures that I can email if that helps to authenticate the manufacturer. Thank you.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
All items are in original near-fine condition, Mahogany base woods and exotic inlay woods were used, structurally sound, fit and finish are overall quality are excellent. Even the manufactures name plates are pristine, Just seemed a little "TOO PERFECT" given my experience.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Given my past experience I would have dated the bedroom set from the late 1940's to late 50's. That's why I had asked the question.

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques and art collector as well as a dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you. Please know I do not send pop-up offers. Although I am USPAP-trained, the assessments given here do not meet USPAP requirements.
Thoughtful responses take time. My responses are not instantaneous.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment. If you cannot send photos, I can still work with your descriptions; however, I can give more accurate answers if I have photos.
Can you send photos?

If so, then -

Please send photos of the items.

Please send a photo of the marks and/or words on the label.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the label.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "ADD FILES" in the blue box link (next to "SEND" or "SUBMIT") on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

http://ww2.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert-hl

OR

Site Help With Photos:

1-***-***-****

The Help service with photos does not cost extra. This is not the same as the pop-up that asks about phone calls. The pop-up is an extra phone call service related to the appraisal, not photos.

I do not send pop-up offers.

Please do not try to use the site email method of sending photos without specific instructions from me.

Kind regards,
Doris
