These matching, high quality cabinets were originally made for the Toledo Museum of Art in the early 20th century. Made of walnut, heavy display glass & with brass capped feet. Each cabinet locks & has viable keys. The larger of the cabinets open via a crank that is turned with rack & pinion system that is hidden in the legs. Raising the cabinet top is actuated by using the crank. All of these beautiful cabinets also have a channel (see photos) that seal the cabinet and keep moisture/dust from entering. Remember, these were made for & used by the Toledo Museum of Art for years for display. The photos shown were taken while in storage & owned by another museum. Each cabinet (except the ones raised by crank) have a key lock that turns an interior slide bolt that locks/unlocks the door. The oval knobs are heavy brass. There are 3 styles/sizes of cabinets available. Where do you ever get the opportunity to purchase numerous matching, vintage museum grade cabinets at this  price?
