Half remembered furniture

Does anybody know the term to describe this particular style of vintage kitchen/dining room hutch? It came in many forms but was generally made from a blonde, plainly figured wood and had bright red accents. I remember seeing examples in nearly every Toronto junk shop was ever in.

I think it was a very common, lower-end style of display hutch, probably popular in the 30s. It had a distinct art deco look, sometimes with rounded corners made from formed plywood. Probably the most distinctive thing about it was the use of red cabinet and drawer knobs or red muntins (whatever you call the wood strips that divide the glass panes). They often have multiple drawers and doors. More funky than elegant.
I'm trying to google examples of this style and coming up blank.
