A dresser made by Olive and Myers.

Posted by Glenn Edward Waters III on January 21, 2013 at 2:45 PM

A dresser made by Olive and Myers. Little history on the company is:

The roots of today's uniView Technologies Corporation are traced back to 1899 with the founding of the Olive & Myers Manufacturing Co. and Houston spin-off Myers-Lottman Co. (later to become Myers-Spalti). Engaged in the production of quality household furniture and mattresses for nearly sixty years, they became the two strongest furniture manufacturers in the Southwest.

In 1957, Curtis Mathes & Associates purchased a major interest in the Olive-Myers-Spalti Manufacturing Co. The new firm, called Curtis Mathes Manufacturing Company, combined its decades of furniture building and electronics experience, first to enter the hi-fi business and, in 1959, the television industry.

With these changes, Curtis Mathes started its tradition of combining top quality video and audio products housed in fine furniture. Just four years later, the Company entered the world of color television, beginning the era in which the Company became a household name.

It’s extremely nicely made and is in pristine condition and was recently refinished. It has really nice rounded edges and very 50's style handles on the drawers. All original. The mirror can be removed for easy transportation. This is an extremely heavy piece of furniture and will require 2 people to move it. Dimensions of the dresser alone is 33 x 60 x 19

I have a limed oak vanity with mirror and bench that matches your dresser. Do you know anyone who might be interested in buying. Any guesses as to its value? Thanks for any help.

Cindy, I'd be interested. My grandfather, H.E. Spalti was vice president (later president) of Olive Myers. For me, the piece has family history value. I'm in the Dallas, Texas area.
Thanks,

I just inherited two nightstands with the paper label "Olive & Myers MFG Co Dallas Texas" inside the drawer and I was wondering if anyone could give me an idea as to when this company used these labels. My furniture appears older than those by the same maker that I am finding online, but I just don't know much about vintage/antiques. Thanks!

I have a dresser and mirror in nice shapethat I will sell for a very reasonable offer. It's in my metal barn sitting unused. I'm about 65 miles NE of Dallas.

I have an Olive & Meyers dresser with mirror like the one that's in the picture and a matching chest of drawers. They are sitting in my garage going to waste and wearing down. They need some fixing up. I would hate to throw them away. Know of someone in the Dallas Texas or Fort Worth, Texas area that will buy them and restore them and resell them so that someone else can enjoy these pieces? I loved them when I used them years ago and would love for someone else to have and love them. Help???

I have an oak chifferobe made by Olive & Myers MFG Co (paper lable). Would you be interested in buying it? I wish we could attach pictures. It's a wonderful piece of furniture.
