Antique furniture labels
Antique furniture labels are labels found on antique furniture which can help to indentify both the manufacturer and when the piece was made. These labels vary from company to company, and many alter over the years as companies change names and locations. Research into a specific 18th, 19th or 20th century furniture manufacturers can help collectors to identify genuine items from later reproductions. The design and placement of furniture labels can be a large part of this authentication process, and there are often records of different labels available online or in reference books.
