Each stand has a single drawer made with superb hand cut dovetails. Fineberg Furniture was located in Hartford CT Abraham Fineberg came to Hartford in 1929. Like Nathan Margolis, he was born in Lithuania. After a brief sojourn in London he arrived in the United States at the age of 16, working first in Portland, Maine. From 1929 to 1932 he worked on and made furniture in the Southern New England Ice House building on Farmington Avenue. The Winick brothers’ father, Samuel Winick, operated a store located next door.In 1932 Fineberg moved to the upper floors of a three-story building on Church Street on the site of the present Hartford Stage Company.Abraham Fineberg and his son, Israel, made fine pieces of furniture to order. Clients would select designs, often from Lockwood’s and Nutting’s books, and Fineberg would make sketches to come up with a suitable design. Pieces were often scaled down from the originals to conform to contemporary needs. Pembroke tables, for example, are downsized to serve effectively as lamp or end tables; the original are somewhat bulky for this use, being essentially tea or breakfast tables.Israel Fineberg today describes his father as a painstaking craftsman who took great personal pride in his work and strove for perfection. He would work long hours to get things right and then felt reluctant to part with his children.The furniture produced by the two Finebergs is rarely marked in any way to distinguish it. Only people that know their work recognize the cabinet work of A. Fineberg.Abraham Fineberg passed away in 1963. His son Israel then took over the business. Israel passed away on October 26, 1997.
