20 drawer oak cabinet - heavy item!!!
This listing is for a wonderful oak Victorian period printers cabinet. This piece has 20 flat 2” high drawers with each drawer having identical separations for the old fashion steel printing type characters. Most drawers has an original brass plate designed to hold a label identifying its contents and a iron pull. This cabinet is 26' deep, 24 wide and 51.5” tall.
Is this an unusual piece?
Can anyone tell me the age/year of this item?
On the front it has a plate that states "Library Bureau Sole Maker" I don't understand why it has that plate on it. I think it is something to do with printing.
I can't seem to find one on-line to compare it to. If anyone knows of a website that has this item with the plate "Library Bureau Sole Maker" of such please let me know. I saw one similar on this website, but mine has more drawers.
