Your Cabinet is a 'Federal Revival' Style piece made during the first quarter of the 20th Century. Federal Revival pieces are reproductions of the original American Federal style furniture first produced from 1780-1820. The Federal Revival style became popular after the first Centennial of the American Revolution in 1876. At that time interest and demand for original Colonial & Federal furnishings was so great it outstripped supply. This caused large manufacturers to begin productionof pieces in the Colonial and Federal styles from the Jacobean to Duncan Phyfe. The style reached it's peak of popularity during the mid 1920's, but pieces of this type remain in production to this day. Tables of this type were produced in huge numbers in mahogany they were also made using in walnut, maple, and cherry. Currently the market is flooded with furniture like this, a result of the downsizing of the Baby Boom Generation, most comparable pieces sell for under $400.00 at auction.
