Q: In the mid 1980s, I bought a matching carved oak buffet, table and four chairs from a local Minnesota antiques dealer. I think she said she bought the set somewhere in the South. There’s a plaque inside one of the buffet doors that says: “Wood Green Furnishing Co., Actual Makers of Good Hand Made Furniture, 134b High Road, Wood Green, N.22, Telephone Bowes Park 2767.” I can find out nothing about this furniture maker. Can you help?

A: Wood Green is a district within the city of London. The Wood Green Furnishing Co. started the legal process of liquidating its assets in 1941, so your furniture was made before the 1940s.
