Great antique find and new info on Monterey Furniture.
We were at an antique mall in Exeter, CA yesterday. I have been keeping my eye open for Monterey or like Monterey furniture. Low and behold I see a mirror hanging on the wall and could you believe it? It matches the buffet that I got for Christmas, same flowers and stain. And..........the best part, it was on sale!! So as soon as DH hangs it up I will take a pic and post. It is very heavy so it needs a sinker. Also my other great news is that I sent pics, check here www.fotki.com/onegdnurse1 to Scott at CircaCalifornia.com and he told me what all my stuff is. What was interesting is that a lamp that I have had practically forever is an early piece of Monterey. The desk is Forrest, the chair is Coronado and I already knew the bedroom set is made by Imperial. The 2 pieces of La Fiesta Ensemble were sold at Sears and Pennys and not considered even Monterey like, which I already knew. But it is pretty exciting . Check out the pics!!
