I HAVE ALSO ATTACHED TO THE LISTING AN ARTICLE ABOUT BOONE CABINETS, IT READS:

"The most extreme utilitarian work center came from Lebanon, IN. The Campbell-Smith-Ritchie Company chose 'Boone' (Lebanon was the county seat of Boone County) as the name for the kitchen cabinets that they began manufacturing in 1910.

In 1922 a new line of innovative Boone cabinets was introduced, each model assigned a woman's name... Bertha Boone, Mary Boone, Helen Boone and the like. They added an ironing board and stool, a windup clock, a mirror, coffee grinder, and desk with pigeonholes and a pencil drawer. The lady of the house could do a good majority of her chores ... just about everything but wash her dishes. They had models with utility closets, some without a top for placement under a window, and cabinets for small home or apartment use.

Like most kitchen cabinet makers, Boone cabinets sold well until the 1930s, when built-in cabinets became the rage".
