I seriously considered turning this into some kind of Halloween cabinet, but then decided maybe the new owner would rather give it the finishing touches. I'm not sure what it was originally intended for. Top section has two doors and there are shelf brackets there to hold some type of narrow shelf. Bottom has two drawers which are dovetailed. It's hard to see the dovetail detail under the black paint, but there are wide dovetails. Someone hand painted the eagles, but it was not done recently. Nice little cabinet with storage capabilities. Measures 36 inches wide by 19 inches deep and stands 29 inches tall. both sides have some veneer damage at base.

Used by taxidermists under the deer hide to form a wall mount. They now use Styrofoam forms, so these are the vintage style made of wood and paper mache. I love the look! One has glass eyes! This is my kind of stuff, a little weird and creepy! There are two!

Having a little fun on my facebook page with an online auction for this cool old drawer front. I was afraid this would be one of those pieces that several people might want. So, I decided to run a little auction and it will go to the highest bidder. The auction ends tomorrow (Thursday, August 14th) at 9 a.m. See my page for more details!
