Impressive French inspired Nightstand or side table by Romweber Furniture, circa 1954. Features a serpentine or oxbow form with tiered surface and lower stoage cabinet. Made from an exotic African burled avodire wood. The rest of the case is accented with paint and gilt details. Features ornately scalloped accents, baroque trimmings and cabriole scrolled feet.
Romweber's unique history dates back to the late 19th century and the three companies from which they evolved: the American Furniture Company, Batesville Cabinet Company, and Batesville Coffin Company. Each company started in 1879, making one of the nation's oldest case good furniture manufacturers.
American Furniture Company manufactured bedroom furniture while Batesville Cabinet specialized in dining room furniture. Of course, Batesville Coffin is self-explanatory.
When these companies merged, they shared a sales force. The salesmen traveled the nation, calling upon owners of furniture stores and directors of funeral homes - often one in the same. Products were sold and shipped coast to coast, quite a rarity at the time.
1930 - 1959
The Depression was a challenge to most business, Survival hinged on the ability to adapt and make products that were in demand during these lean economic times. In fact, RomWeber made five-pound fruitcake boxes to survive those tough years.
Versatility came to the fore again during World War II when we made ammunition boxes and pontoons for American troops, and furniture for officers' quarters.
The 60s and beyond
Romweber furniture went to college with the baby boomers. Schools like Purdue, Indiana University, Xavier University, Miami University of Ohio, and Notre Dame bought it for dorms and classrooms because of its durability. Forty years later, it still is in some of these schools.
Renowned people and places have been among Romweber customers. U.S. presidents and Saudi royalty have purchased our furniture. So have fine resorts, including the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in Michigan, and The Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
