This is a 1920's Putnam Dye store counter display cabinet. Years ago many people dyed their garments at home with commercial brand dyes. This cabinet has a graphic of Gereral Putnam on horseback being chased by British redcoats. The front opens up to reveal pigeon holes for the packets of dye. There is also a booklet that shows all the colors available, as well as how to dye your garments.The colors are still vibrant. The Putnam Dye Company was based in Quincy Illinois.
