Antique Collectors Cabinet
An unusual mahogany collector's cabinet dating from the 19th century. The mahogany door encloses 7 graduated drawers, each with a small recessed brass knob. One drawer has two dividers but the rest are empty. The cabinet is very well made with metal corners and a double locking mechanism, both locks with working keys. It has a carrying handle on the top and I would imagine this was specially made to carry tools or equipment for a particular trade or perhaps store somebody's collection.
It is in good original condition and displays very nicely with a lovely aged patina. It has had some repairs over the years and picked up a few minor knocks and scuffs and small splits over the years and signs of age and use but nothing detrimental. The drawers all open and close smoothly and are generally clean and tidy inside.
