An occasional series featuring questions from the public about vintage Heywood-Wakefield pieces
I’ve attached a photo of a china cabinet… could this be a Heywood-Wakefield piece? If so, can you tell the year and type from the picture?
I believe your item is from Heywood-Wakefield’s Fascination collection. But it looks like elements from two different models have been combined.
The base looks like the M 1972 Utility Cabinet, but the china hutch doesn’t appear to be the one that was sold with that base. The hutch top looks like the M 1977, but the correct base for this china hutch would have been the M 1979, which measured 72″ x 19″ x 31″.
It’s hard to see the chairs you have stacked up, but they might be M 1981 Side Chairs. If you measure these pieces and send me this additional information and some better pictures, I should be able to tell you more.
Have you looked on back and underneath the chairs, and inside the top left drawer for the HW logo? Also, take a look at our article “Clues for Identifying Vintage Heywood-Wakefield Furniture.”
Thanks for writing in Tim!
