    Ok, now go to your original post. The edit button will still be showing.
    Click Edit, More Options, Full Image, Save.

    The edit button eventually goes away.

    I'm not familiar with the furniture company.
    It's not very often this style of furniture is marked.
    Maybe one of the guys will know about the company.

    As for your china cabinet - Not pie cupboard.
    American Oak roughly 1890s - early 1900s.

    People come and go on the forums at all hours. Be sure to check back and see if anyone comments on the company.

    All I get is error messages when I try to open up the photos.

    Cluttered's right about the function and material: china cabinet, American oak. I'd narrow it down a little and say 1900-1910. I don't recognize the maker, either, but there were dozens - if not hundreds - of furniture manufacturers across the U.S. upper midwest in that era.

    Like Cluttered said, it's unusual to have a maker's ink stamp, or really a label of any sort. It usually helps in resale too, especially if the piece has not travelled far and if you can read the stamp :).

    Usually call these a kitchen cupboard. Ghopper is right on as far as dating. Nice that you have the crown. Many of these had them removed to modernize the look.

    Just FYI...

    Looks like the company was founded by a German immigrant and in business from the 1890s through about 1930. Through looking at receipts I located the site of the factory in what is now a very bad part of north St. Louis. Unsurprisingly, the building was demolished and is now a vacant lot, a fate that seems to have happened to about half the buildings in that area. So sad.

    As you were, and happy Friday!
