These labels are placed on the backs or bottoms of tables and chairs, or on the bottoms of drawers. Upholstered furniture is marked with a cloth label. Along with the company name and place of manufacture, the label sometimes provides additional information on the type of finish applied to the wood. Thanks a lot.
