    A true beauty! I love old ice-boxes. I have 1 close to yours that I had to make from pics.. Is yours functional with drains, slush box etc.? I made mine functional so i can actually use it when power goes for long periods(I live in the "Wayward islands". Your's is orig., so what brand? Orig.'s r really hard to find now. I spent many a month looking in the States to understand the drainage sys. etc. I would send a pic but don't see a provision for it here

    The combination of wood cuts is certainly different.

    Looking great. Is the nickle plating on the hardware still as good as it looks?Are the drip-pan & metal lining still in good shape?
  8. huey huey, 5 years ago
    had to paint the hardware and drip pan and lining were rusted with holes so i just primed and painted them all.turned out ok i just use it for a wine cabinet

    You're lucky to have the drip-pan. One of the first things that disappears.
