This is a beautiful wooden chest or box. Shown here closed, with brass corners and insert in middle. One of my customers was looking through the box, and he found the key in one of the secret compartments! Shown below with box open.

I'm not sure what the original purpose of this box was. It was sold at auction as a tool box. I found buttons, needles, etc. which led me to believe it was a sewing chest. Another customer thought perhaps it was a document box. In any case, it has lots of lift out boxes, and secret compartments beneath. Very unusual!

Those of you who know me, know that this is way too perfect to be in my store! I love things with peeling paint, and dents and gouges. Someone needs to come and give this beautiful cabinet a good home! There are five glass shelves with the bottom shelf being mirrored. The cabinet stands 81 inches tall, 18 inches wide and 11 inches deep. There is also a light at the top to showcase your collectibles.
