For your consideration is this old oak hardware store, nut and bolt, seed cabinet with 90 drawers. It measures 63" long, 52" tall and the case itself is 10 3/4" deep. It has a brass manufacturer's nameplate on the top front edge but I can't make out what it says. The cabinet has 3 different drawer sizes. T are 60 that are, 3 3/4 x 5", 12 that are 5 x 6 3/4', and 18 that are 10 x 6 1/2". The smaller drawers had hardware in them, the large ones had seeds. This one, as you can see came right out of use. I bought it at the hardware store closeout auction and emptied the plumbing fittings and the seeds out that day. The entire cabinet is made of oak with the insides of the drawers being tin or galvanized metal. The back is also sheet metal. Under all the labels you can still see the original old blistered finish. Most of the handles are showing some rust, except the ones that were used more often. It's of course showing signs of maybe 80 or 90 years of use but it's still solid and actually only a shave and a haircut away form being ready for another 80 or 90 years. It is being offered estate fresh without reserve so help yourself. Please e-mail with any questions. As you can imagine, it's heavy. Shipping will not be inexpensive. I'll be glad to work with the shipper of your choice. I do get to Atlanta and St. Louis on a regular basis or delivery to other areas is possible. As always you are welcome to pick up in central Illinois. thanks.
