In 1915, L. O. Moser, Sr. opened the L. O. Moser Furniture Company in Lynchburg, Virginia. Its building at 409 Fifth St. was designed in 1933 by Stanhope S. Johnson and R. O. Brannan, and built in 1936. The company operated at that location until 2005 when it was relocated in its entirety to 27951 County Road 319, Buena Vista, Colorado, by Ron Southard, et. al.
To quote from the 1929 Moser Catalog:“After many years’ study of the old craftsmen and their handiwork, the founder …established a shop at Lynchburg, Virginia, in 1915 for the purpose of reproducing some of the finer antique furniture found mostly in the thirteen original states. Many museum pieces have also been copied … “
Again quoting L. O. Moser, Sr. “… Our reproductions are correct copies of the original in size, form, decoration, and quality; materials in some instances are even superior to the original. The construction embodies the best principles of workmanship, such as hand dovetailing, mortising, and hand carving. Also we make furniture to the customers’ design and specifications, both period and modern…”
