    This is a spool cabinet my wife got from her mother 30 years ago. It has glass fronted drawers . We are not sure when this was made. Any info is appreciated . It goes really well with other antiques around the house.

      Nice spool cabinet!

      It is better than most-- tall size allows you to use it as a table. Mine is a shorter version and won't work as a stand alone.

      I'd put this in the late 19th century. With a little work, you should be able to find some black pulls to replace the missing/ white ones. Also, the small stamped metal adornment around the pulls can be found/ replaced.

      There may even be a maker for replacement parts out there.

      Great cabinet!

      The Clark family built the first factory for making cotton thread for sewing in 1812 in Paisley, Scotland. George A. Clark (1824-1873), a descendant of the founders, immigrated to the United States in 1856 and acted as an agent for the company. In 1864, George and his brother, William, built a thread mill in Newark, N.J. It became Clark Thread Co. The trademark "O.N.T" stands for "Our New Thread," a six-cord thread developed by George for use with sewing machines. The company merged with J. & P. Coats in 1952 and is in business today as Coats & Clark, Inc., headquartered in Charlotte, N.C. Spool cabinets were display cases used in general stores and dry goods stores in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
      Here is the link with info. for your cabinet.

      Hope this helps.

      Scottvez and Roddyq thank you so much for the info. I read this to my wife and she was thrilled to hear this. That's what so great about this community.

      Made before 1873 and used as a display case in a general store. It's survived all these years. Thanks again you guys.
