Wow, it's beautiful Julie! Good find.

marti

I have one of those cabinets from my mom and the one that you got is in very good condition. Congrats in the purchase!

amy k.

crap! it's amazing! I gasped when I saw the photo.

Jessica

Congrats on the find. I miss the Sandwich Antiques Market *so* much. There is nothing even vaguely like it near Seattle.

Karen

That is so awesome! It reminds me of a big basket, except it's on legs.

Colleen

Oh, my gosh! I have something like that I inherited from my Grandmother. She always used it to store her knitting needles and now I do, too - here it is: http://www.knittinhoney.blog-city.com/my_grandmothers_knitting_stand.htm

I'll have to look to see if it's the same brand - it doesn't appear like it, to me - but yours is only the second one of like construction I've ever seen!

Jo

I couldn't tell you a blessed thing about the style, but I was given one of these by my Mom (and think it may still be in her storage somewhere...)

It's beautiful!!

Jenn

Love it! I finally got my mom to give me hers like this - it's too big for her anymore, and I love it. Mine doesn't have a sticker or anything on it, but I know it was my grandmother's before it was my moms, so that puts it around the 1940s/1950s. Enjoy yours!

Theresa

Gorgeous. I can so see that in your house!

Hi!
Strømmen is a place in Norway - close to the town Hamar. "Bruk" can be translated into "mill". The only useful information I can find on this business (except some information about design awards they got in the 70's) is a link to this guy
http://www.arkivbord.com/erfaring.htm
He has Strømmen Bruk on his resume, so maybe you can get in contact with him to get some more information on your sewing cabinet?

Wow what a treasure!!! it's really pretty. Glad you got a good deal and it was something you really wanted. I love 'finds' like that!

Jodie

I know I have a green one with no legs thats is very rickety and I love it too !!!

Jess

Wow, that's really cool! My mom has something similar, though with short legs and a different handle. I loved looking through it as a kid.

I hope you get lots of enjoyment out of your new sewing cabinet!
