In the center of the bottom row of the collection picture posted on Sept. 28th is a Wedell & Boers 7 drawer chest. They were the first company to build a portable ‘Mechanics Tool Chest’. (A Chest has a top opening lid with a storage till. A Case has a solid top, no opening lid). They didn’t use Style numbers. It was a 7 drawer manufactured in 1910 and it set the standards for future chest designs. Mine was manufactured in 1915 – 1919. It is leatherette covered with mahogany drawer fronts and is 16 ½” wide.
Have a good one…..Ted
