Drexel Profile

The Drexel Profile furniture collection was designed by John Van Koert, and it was in production from 1955 to 1961. Van Koert started out as a jewelry designer for Harry Winston after WWII and later branched into industrial design. He also is well known for designing silver for Towle, particularly the Contour design; his particular attention to the drawer pulls and other hardware on Profile pieces is noted in the catalog. Thanks to Femme1 for obtaining this information – including this complete 1960 catalog, courtesy of the excellent customer service at Drexel.  Femme1 owns the walnut dining table and chairs #K40, and the round extension table, with #K62, the side chairs.

    Craigslist is likely your best bet. If it’s super desirable ebay, or get a professional appraisal to determine value and pro advice to find a buyer.

    I just aquired the drop leaf dining room table but the center leaf was not with it. Any ideas where I might be able to find a replacement?

    I just picked up the smaller buffet, sans china hutch. It needs a little TLC, but I really like it. I believe the date stamp on the back indicates it was made in April of 1956. I’m just curious, how does one find out the original purchase price?

    Does anyone know a good way to clean/polish up the gold colored drawer handles on 1958 Drexel Projection series pieces? I have my dad’s tall dresser and the drawer handles are a very dirty dark matte/brushed looking gold color but I believe these were a shinier brass color when new? Anyone know? Thanks!

    Hello, do you happen to have any history on the Drexel Projection line? Having a hard time finding anything.
