A nice little cabinet I just picked up. I don't know the history but it looks like the drawers are made of cigar boxes.

    The cabinet is about 12 inches high and 6 1/2 inches deep. It is made of wood and the drawers appear to be made out of cigar boxes. I have no idea what the white knobs are made of, my first thought was bakelite but I'm not sure.

      Hi
      btroz
      Most likely the knobs are made in ceramic, this look like a small dresser for doll house, folk art .

      Regards

      Homemade either a dolls dresser or a jewelry box or hankie box for Mom . Very creative and a cool piece .

      Reminds me of a (possible) tea caddy or a Spice wood caddy. Possibilites could be multiple for this. The boxes it was made out of could have been Cigar / tobacco boxes, or even Tea Boxes.....??? Any smells or scents you can smell on the wood??
