honderich walnut credenza

This has got to be my favourite thrifting find ever: A Honderich walnut credenza.

This piece is amazing! The wood itself is in great condition, just a few minor scratches on the surface but nothing a teak oil won’t fix. The bottom cabinet doors slide into the middle with ease, revealing a ton of storage. The first drawer has four main cutlery dividers and is lined with a dark purple/black velvet liner! Velvet! The drawers are dove-tailed and there is a ‘honderich’ stamp on the first drawer. From doing some quick research online the company looks to be from Ontario in the mid 20th century. And I can’t find the credenza selling for less than $400, let alone both pieces together. Score! I also stumbled upon this catalogue for the pieces and it looks like they were originally sold separately as a “1893 hutch” and “1892 buffet”!
