ANTIQUE 2 DRAWER CHESTNUT COUNTRY STORE SPOOL CABINET THAT WAS USED FOR THREAD AND SILKS. CAN BE USED FOR JEWELRY, COINS, STAMPS ETC... A VERY WONDERFUL SOLID CHESTNUT WOOD SPOOL CABINET WITH ALL 4 ORIGINAL PORCELAIN NOBS, ONE OF THE NOBS IS MISSING A BRASS WASHER BUT SHOULD BE AN EASY FIND, MADE OF HARDWOOD CHESTNUT, SOME THE INTERIOR SPRUCE WOOD DRAWER SPOOL SPLINES ARE MISSING AND SOME ARE A LITTLE LOOSE BUT A HANDY PERSON COULD FIX IT RIGHT UP AND LOOKS NICE ANYWAY, THIS EARLY ANTIQUE SPOOL CABINET DATES BACK INTO THE 1800'S AND WAS MOST LIKELY DISPLAYED ON THE COUNTER OF AN OLD COUNTRY GENERAL STORE MERCANTILE. BEING OVER 100 YEARS OLD, OF COURSE YOU WILL FIND IMPERFECTIONS HERE AND THERE AND MY PHOTOS CAN DESCRIBE THE CONDITION BETTER THAN MYSELF. NICE AND STURDY CASE FOR SURE! DRAWERS OPERATE SMOOTHLY. I SEE NO CRACKS ANYWHERE ON THE DRAWERS, TOP, BACK OR SIDES, JUST EXPECTED AGE IMPERFECTIONS HERE AND THERE ONLY ADDING CHARM. THE LOWER LEFT CORNER OF THE BASE BOTTOM BOARD CORNER HAS A CORNER CHIP BUT CAN EASILY BE FILLED WITH WOOD FILLER IF SO DESIRED, THE BOTTOM OF THE CABINET HAS THE ORIGINAL OLD ANTIQUE FELT OR VELVET TO PREVENT SCRATCHING SURFACES. THE DRAWERS ARE ALL DOVETAILED ON ALL CORNERS. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL CABINET AND A RARE FIND! 13" WIDE BY 8" FROM FRONT TO BACK AND ABOUT 5-1/2" HIGH.
