This is a superb antique Yawman & Frbe MFG. CO. from the early 1900’s Mission and Arts & Crafts period in very good condition.
Yawman & Frbe manufactured the best file cabinets in the early 1900’s better than competitors Weiss and Globe Wernicke.
The cabinet is extremely well made of thick quarter sawn oak and is extremely heavy.
As you can read on the inside tag, the piece is expandable (the sides come off to add more sections).
The drawers have original heavy brass hardware, are dovetailed, and are very heavy and sturdy. The back is finished as well.
Cabinets made by Yawman & Frbe are hard to find on today’s market and are very desirable.
The piece is signed.
