One of my newest discoveries is the Henry Link "Mandarin" collection. I found this piece on Craigslist and originally thought it might be a Dixie collection, you know they like to do the exotic inspired pieces like "Shangri-La" and "Campaigner." It seems that there is not much in the way of photos from this set but I think it's hardware is some of the best that I have seen.
Sorry, terrible photo, just lacquered this dresser mint green.
Nice before and after I found.
Cute little chest.
The funny thing about this is that every piece of Henry Link "Mandarin" is exactly the same size as a piece of Dixie "Shangri-La"
So I decided to put together two single nightstands from each set:
EXACT same size, Henry Link on the left Dixie on the right. So we lacquered them the same color so someone can use them as a similar but quirky mismatched pair.
That made me really happy.
