Very attractive piece. I looked and looked for a corner curio cabinet to display my small collection of Hummels. I saw this on line and it did a search to see if a store in my area had one and a furniture store did so I was able to go and see it before purchasing. It is a perfect size, not overwhelming at all and I am very happy with it. I like the etching on the front of the glass. It doesn't lock, however, if that would be important to you.
It's just what I was looking for! I was looking for a nice looking corner knick knack cabinet.The one I had was a hand-me down, "okay looking hutch that was in the corner, although it wasn't desiged for it. It was too big and didn't go with my woodwork. This one does, and it's absolutely lovely!!!! I love it. It's perfect, and exactly what I was looking for. I kept hinting to my son to build me one, so he was overjoyed to see that I had bought this one. My grandchildren love looking at all the fun knick knacks. Thanks for offering this wonderful product.
It is simply beautiful!!!! It is in my dining room displaying all the delicate and precious items in my possesion. I chose just the right size and it looks simply beautiful. I can move the adjusting shelves where I want them. The light in the top makes everything show up so gorgeous. I am so very pleased with it. I would buy from them again, as they carry the very best lines of merchandise.
Perfect for display of Hummels. We purchased two for our granddaughter's new home. They display ONLY Hummels that were given to her by the other grandparents. Between the two are displayed 4 Hummel plates with same oak frames. Beautiful! The only thing that concerned us: because we live in earthquake conscious California, the type of hanger on the back could allow the curio to jump up if there was a vertical strain. The wood did not seem adequate. To resolve, we placed two bronze brackets below each unit and attached to wall and curio. You might suggest to customers who live in EQ country.
GORGEOUS CABINET ! GREAT PRICE ! The first thing you should know is that the color of the wood is darker and much richer looking than the photo in the ad. I would call it more of a medium oak. That worked out well for me because it matched my medium oak dining set. This piece is GORGEOUS!! I LOVE IT !! I display antique crystal and china in it. This piece is HUGE It fit almost all of my collection and my collection needed two cabinets to fit it all in the past. The lighting makes the crystal sparkle like diamonds. You really have to see it in person to appreciate how beautiful it really looks. For the price you can't go wrong !! Looks like I paid double what I paid !
LOVE IT!!! Not too big, but room enough for glasses, liquor bottles, wine bottles. Love that it locks with teenagers in the house. Very attractive distressed black finish. High quality dove-tailed drawers. Cool-looking old fashioned glass. [...] Extremely pleased with purchase; it completes our dining room as an accent piece.
Howard Miller = Quality product. Just what I was looking for and even better in reality than I could hope to find after looking for months. I cannot stress enough the quality of the piece - solid construction, the doors close with a well fitting "ca-chunk." The wavy looking glass of my vintage home is echoed in the doors of this piece and adds a wonderful touch. [...] Just order this piece - you'll be very happy you did.
Incomparable workmanship. Unsurpassed quality. A quest for perfection. It’s what Howard C. Miller insisted on when he founded the company back in 1926, at the age of 21.
Even then, Howard Miller understood the need to create products that would be steeped in quality and value. He expected nothing less than the best. And it was only under those strict conditions that he allowed his name to grace every clock manufactured at our sprawling facility in Zeeland, Michigan.
Howard Miller was schooled in the fine art of clockmaking by his father, Herman, in the Black Forest region of Germany. Howard developed into a visionary whose keen sense of innovation spawned a tradition of excellence that has been uncompromised through three generations.
While the early years focused on the manufacture of chiming wall and mantel clocks, Howard Miller also produced trend-setting avant garde clocks that stand today in collectors' galleries. During World War II, Howard Miller joined forces with the Ford Motor Co. to produce anti-aircraft covers. In the 1960s, the company turned its attention to grandfather clocks, eventually earning the company the title of "World's Largest Grandfather Clock Manufacturer."
In 1989, Howard Miller began creating collectors cabinets with the same attention to detail and craftsmanship inherent in their clockmaking. Fashioned from glass and hardwoods, the cabinets are ideal for displaying heirlooms, plates, glassware and other collectibles.
As part of the company's continuing effort to bring customers only the best in handcrafted products, Howard Miller recently acquired three companies: The Hekman Furniture Company produces a strong cadre of carefully sculpted hardwood pieces that range from 18th and 19th Century reproductions, to contemporary products featuring fine metals and exotic woods. The Woodmark Company makes fine upholstered pieces. And the exquisite movement in many clocks they offer is made by Old World craftsmen employed by the Kieninger Company of Germany.
While Howard Miller products might once have been primarily considered as gifts for weddings, anniversaries and retirements, the company's expanded line of offerings is enticing more and more buyers who simply desire quality timepieces and furniture in their homes and businesses -- no occasion required.
They offer hundreds of items to complement any decor ranging from portable alarm clocks to desk sets to wall and mantel clocks to collectors cabinets to limited edition grandfather clocks. And in price ranges that may surprise you - from $5 to $15,000.
No matter the price of the purchase, you have the same assurance that Howard C. Miller provided when he began offering clocks more than 70 years ago: That quality be reflected both in the products they create, and in the people whose artistic talents they rely on to manufacture them.
The legacy left by Howard C. Miller isn't an easy one to emulate. But it's the only way they know of doing business. Incomparable workmanship. Unsurpassed quality. A quest for perfection.
