Vintage Drexel Declaration furniture – Catherine sends us a gorgeous brochure

Following the “original” Drexel post (where we also met Troy of Troyland), the wonderful Catherine kindly scanned some precious vintage Drexel advertising to share with other readers. She says:

Here is one of my Drexel Declaration ads that was in the drawer of the dresser that I bought from my Great Grandmother. She had marked the ones that were “mine” and even wrote the price next to our Catkin bed – $79!!! I just love the living/dining room scene!! Wish I could find that living room set. Anyway, hope you enjoy! – Catherine

Catherine, did you say “Catkin”? That bed was surely destined for you! And from your Great Grandmother, no less! Thank you so much, this Drexel furniture is AWESOME! More posts on it to come – the original post inspired some other content, including a reader purchase!

Above: Added March 2014 — Reader Rob sent us these four photos of his vintage Drexel Declaration bedroom set. Thanks, Rob! He wrote:

Hello Pam,
Thanks so much for writing back! I love your site, especially the Time Capsule house articles. I am attaching the photos of the Drexel set here- I got a 5-pc bedroom set for a song, worst part was driving to Queens to pick up and then hauling them up to my fourth floor walk-up. I found them through Apartment Therapy Classifieds (run by Krrb), more proof that affordable doesn’t have to mean Ikea!
Best regards,

    Was so very lucky in the last 30 days…purchased the catkin queen headboard for only $65 on Christmas Eve. Last week I found the long dresser and tall dresser with a full size headboard – all in mint mint condition. Only paid $300 for all of it and the owner threw in another teak credenza that looks great with our TV on it. I’m still looking for more though…

    I just picked up a Drexel Declaration nightstand at a thrift store! It looks just like the one pictured above. Matches my living room furniture beautifully.

    I have a drexel corner china cabinet, I am wondering the value of it. It is stamped

    No. 340-40 Mahy
    By Drexel 12-48

    I assume it’s mahogany in pretty decent condition

    Looking to replace the Drexel Heritage Declaration by Kipp Stewart & Stewart MacDougal party table and chairs I lost in a fire.

    Are there any pictures available, and where do you suggest I look?

      Hi Susie, I’m sorry to hear about your fire! I hope everyone was safe!

      If you click on the image of the brochure, it will enlarge on your screen. But, it’s still pretty small. For other photos, I don’t know where to point you. I’d start first with googling images to see if it pops up. Good luck.
