Saw this in Pat and Tony Nailor's booth at Stoudt's antique mall in Adamstown, PA. Tony spent a good bit of time with me showing me the various spool cabinets they've run across and why they like them (basically as furniture)... I will showcase others separately. Obviously these are not the original spools from 1880.

Part of my summer 2010 whirlwind east coast antiques tour.

    I have this cabinet but missing the center front "crown". Love this cabinet and it is an awesome thimble display case!

    We bought a spool cabinet at auction; it is missing it's lower drawer. Is there any way to find a replacement drawer? Thanks.

    This is beautiful! I find it amazing how our ancestors made such beautiful, amazing furniture and glass and how it stood the test of time. Now days you're lucky if you buy something new, it looks just ok, and only lasts a few years

    FINALLY.....one that looks like mine !!!! I own a 30 drawer Winstead Spool Cabinet from 1905. Same basic design as this one except I am missing the cornice on top. Have only seen a couple others in museums. Most have a clock in the cornice. I have good reason to believe that mine came out of a Five and Dime in Cardington Ohio back in the early 1900's. My Grandfather owned the only drug store there for 42 years.
