Recently purchased a dining room set (monitor).
It's a 96" rectangle with two 14" leafs for the ends.
Six chairs (4 ladder chairs and 2 captain ladder chairs).
They all are four rung ladder chairs and are beautiful.
Also have a hutch.
Looking for ANY info. on this set.
Will not sell of course, just looking for some history,
I was told lady had them at least as early as 1986.

Appreciate any help.

I have a Bucks County provincial wild cherry SLEIGH shaped coffee table made by Monitor Furniture Co. Would like to sell if anyone is interested.

I am downsizing soon and have a Queen/King Monitor Cherry bedroom set - bed, tall bureau, long bureau, mirror and 2 night stands. I purchased them in 1979.

The head board is very unique and fragile. The first 2 head boards had a crack in the middle of the headboard. The third one has made about 13 moves and never cracked. It is an open design with 4 scroll sections and a small solid center piece. The top curves up and down which gives it it's unique shape and creates the delicate nature of the head board.

I am looking for a Monitor Furniture Highboy dresser if anyone in the midwest has one. I am in Oklahoma.

Did anyone ever give an estimated value to the cherry/mahogany "secretary" that was made by Monitor Furniture Company?
Thanks for all the history! I used to live in Jamestown, NY for a couple of years, but was too young to be interested in furniture at that time!

I have inherited a cherry or mahogany bedroom set. I think my mother bought it around the early l980s from Kleban Furn. Floor Covering, l64 Morningstar Road, Elm Park, S.I., NY. l0303. It has a king size headboard, triple dresser with mirror, chest & 1 night stand with drawer & doors underneath. I am going to move soon & wonder what it would be worth. It's all in good condition.

Hi all. I have a desk that appears to be cherry veneered made by the monitor furniture company. Can't find any info about this desk online. Wondering about age, style and value. It is very simple and traditional looking. I would call it petite. 8 drawers total including a wide drawer at top center and a taller drawer for paperwork on the lower right. It is perfectly rectangle on top and flat. Dimensions are 24 x 46 on the top and 30 tall. Nice simple moulding all around including a 4" baseboard all around both legs. Really nice piece. Any info would be very interesting. Thanks.   -jay
