Item: Huntley hutch

Price: $215

Available at Rural Origins Antiques, Royalton, MN

**Items in hutch are sold separately.

Additional info: According to this page at antiquerestorers.com, the B. F. Huntley furniture company merged with Thomasville Chair Company in 1961. This would indicate that anything marked Huntley is likely from before this time.

This info is further repeated on this page of Thomasville history at fundinguniverse.com and again at mahalo.com.We couldn’t find a more official source for this info, like the Thomasville website. There are so many furniture companies in North Carolina, where Huntley and Thomasville were/are based that Huntley doesn’t seem to make it onto most history sites. There are nice pictures of a B. F. Huntley Furniture Company fire in 1956 on the Digital Forsyth website.

This hutch has a Huntley marking in the top drawer (see pic below).
