This vintage Walnut display box for telegraph, cable forms, blanks and envelopes comes from a South Bend Indiana Estate and is rumored to have come from the Oliver Hotel, but we have no proof of this. The box is in very nice shape with only a minimal amount of the normal light scratches, and handling wear one would expect to see on a counter top display item like this. T are no serious areas of concern, and it displays very well, The box stands 11 inches tall, and about 4 inches deep, and about 9 1/2 inches wide. It has several dividers inside for the various cable / telegraph blanks and forms. On the bottom is an ink stamp indicating it was inspected by Western Union, and approved. Please see the pictures and feel free to ask any questions you need to ask that my description may have overlooked.
