There was a company here, started in the late 1800s I believe, by the name of Globe FurnitureRead MoreCompan y. Originally it was called they produced school furniture, so I am wondering if at some point they didn't mark the furniture "G S Co" for that. I found a reference in "Northville - The First 100 Years" by Jack Hoffman to Globe having a contract in 1889 to furnish "700 opera chairs for Cleary's business college in Ypsilanti". I think this is most likely the mfr. of your seats. I have never seen reference to another furniture mfr. in Northville. Hope this helps!

Glad that worked for you. If you are looking for more information, there are quite a few mentionsRead Moreo f the Globe Furniture Co. in the Hoffman book. Also, Northville has an historical society which might be useful. Glad the info helped!
