Twenty years ago I purchased a reproduction spice jar, just for informational purposes, and found a very distinct difference between new and old.
There are also plenty of reproductions, but you can to see ads for different types of cabinets based on the manufacturer and year, which feature photos of what the cabinets should look like or check other reference guides.
It was exceedingly popular because most houses constructed at that time did not have built-in custom cabinetry.
It stripped clean, revealing oak drawers, doors and side panels.
Late art deco designs are comparatively rare, but they are not as sought after by collectors.
Usually, this type of cabinet is properly lined and designed for bread.
This is where antique collectors mostly find products.
On our job, I stained, sealed with shellac and finished with Lacquer.
