I found this listed as a "metal cabinet" on Craigslist in Los Angeles a couple of years ago and I fell in love. Once I brought it home, I noticed a signature had been engraved on the outside of the inner door. It said J G Requile. I did some research on it and found that he was an ironworker in Belgium and did work on staircases, gardens and cemetery gates. I still haven't found out what it's worth but it's priceless to me. Anyone have any experience with this item? I heard maybe it was used in front of a furnace or some other heating fixture.
