It has been used in various capacities around the house but I finally decided it needed a little pep talk and a facial so I got to sanding it and refinishing it. In the process, I noticed the Wurlitzer name on the inside of the drawer and the name kept nagging my brain. SO I finally did some research and this is what I found out.
Just like everyone else during the depression, Wurlitzer was suffering some pretty heavy loses financially. In in a bid to stay solvent, it started making a line of office furniture. It didn't really take off and the company was eventually sold to Tab, not sure if that is the soda company or not. It was eventually sold to the Gibson Guitar Company in 1986.
So my little table is a little bit of depression history!
Here she is before:
She had a broken leg that had to be set first and once the cast was off we could send her to the plastic surgeon.
The veneer on the top had to be removed because it was in bad shape as well.
Here she is after. She got a nice oil-rubbed bronze facial and then a straw flower yellow finish on her legs finally, a full body wax.
I don't think she is depressed any longer! What do you think?
You can also go see her in the shop!
Always being renewed,
