Inlaid Traditional Dining Room Furniture from Potthast Brothers of Baltimore Maryland!

potthastinlaidmahoganyfurnitureNow here’s some Fabulous Estate Furniture that you certainly don’t see every day! While many of our customers know and appreciate the quality of furniture makers like Henkel Harris, Stickley, Kittinger, and Statton, some still don’t know about the early cabinet shops like Biggs and Potthast that started it all.

Pictured here are some of the Cabinet Made, Inlaid, Honduran Mahogany Dining Room pieces from Potthast that arrived on our dock yesterday. These fine pieces are older examples of Great 18th Century Reproductions from what was Baltimore’s Favorite Furniture Maker for Over 100 Years. Pieces include a set of 8 Shieldback Chairs with Bellflower Inlay, a Williamsburg Hepplewhite Sideboard, an Inlaid Server, China Cabinet, and a Double Pedestal Dining Table. Stop in today to see these beauties in person!

Dear Friend and Long-Time Cornerstone Manager Passes Away.

denniskendallOn November 30, 2012, we lost someone very special to everyone here at Cornerstone. Long Time Manager and Dear Friend, Dennis Kendall passed away at his Fallston Farm after a long battle with cancer.

Our customers will remember Dennis for his infectious smile and can-do attitude. Whether he was placing a big red bow on a Potthast corner cupboard for a Christmas Eve Delivery, or bringing a piece to a customer in his own truck because they needed it that night, Dennis always went the extra mile.

Our staff will always remember Dennis for his rare combination of Super Hard Worker with Great Attention to Detail! His Git-R-Dun attitude and great people skills mentored all of us on a daily basis. He put his stamp on Cornerstone in many ways- he will truly be missed.

There is not enough space here to write even a glimpse into the wonderful life that Dennis led, or the many people he touched in Baltimore County and beyond. There will be a Memorial Service on Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at the Long Green Valley Church of the Brethren at 2pm. It is located at 4800 Long Green Road, Glen Arm, Maryland 21057. All are welcome. We will close the store next Tuesday at 1pm so that our staff can attend.

Beautiful Biggs Furniture from Baltimore Estate!

baltimorefurniturestoreWe’ve just placed some fabulous Biggs Furniture from a very well-kept home in Towson, Maryland (a Northern Suburb of Baltimore). This is some of the nicest Biggs furniture that we’ve seen in quite some time! Besides the lovely Solid Mahogany Corner Cabinet you see photoed here, you’ll find an Inlaid Sideboard, a Dining Room Table and Chairs, a Pair of Upholstered Occasional Chairs, and More!

Biggs was a very well-known Cabinet Maker from Richmond, Virginia. They used only the Finest Solid Mahogany to construct their pieces. They competed with Baltimore’s Potthast Brothers for high end buyers in the Baltimore and Washington DC area. Their Baltimore Furniture business was so good, that they even had a store on our “Charles Street”- a very upscale business district on the North side of Baltimore.

Don’t let this opportunity to own some Regional History with this beautiful furniture. And remember, you can join our Want List to get updates by manufacturer as well as style. So you can be sent a picture of every Biggs piece we bring in to the store!
