This art is 6 x 6 inches. I don't know how the picture was applied to the wood - it doesn't feel like there is paint on it. There was, at one time, a foil label on the back that may have provided more information, but apparently it has detached over the years. Anyone recognize this art form?

To attache photos, click on the picture frame icon; it the one between to the one that says LINK and the one that looks like movie film. Then you can upload pics.

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera yesterday

That's cool about your pictures being put on the website; if you're selling it you might include that too. Free advertising is GOOD.  At least have the webmaster include a "Donated by Lillian Dunbar" if you want.

Cute tapestries...not sure what "carpetbagging cloth" is, these tapestries range in price between $8.00 to $20. USD depending on condition.  I don't see any moth holes; must have been stored in a red cedar cabinet...LOL

Comment by Lillian Dunbar on Thursday

These tapestries were stuffed in that cedar cabinet that I posted yesterday. They look and feel like carpetbagging cloth. All depict cats. They average 38" long and 20" wide.

BTW - it is not varnished on the interior.

Thanks, Tom. I did contact the administrator of that Web page and he said he wants to use my photos on his site. I gave permission and he said that they would appear next week.

This company operated from 1921 thru 1952 in Chattanooga TN. A cedar chest by them recently sold on eBay for $75.00.  I'd guess your cabinet would be valued at $150-200.  Amount varies by area.

Here's some more info on the company.  http://www.chattanoogan.com/2015/4/8/297795/Remembering-the-Tenness...

Looks like aromatic red cedar that's been lacquered. Hope they didn't lacquer the interior. The wonderful cedar smell provides protection from moths and other bugs.

I'd call it a blanket cabinet/chest.

It is cedar. When I emptied it out, this poster was stuck to the back interior. It was made by the Tennessee Red Cedar and Novelty Company in Chattanooga.
