Product Description

A stunning, original dentists’ bank of drawers…

This is such a beautiful piece! Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that this dates to the earlier part of the 20th century, circa 1930s. It’s a cabinet today that could serve many of functions, that being in a retail environment or even for personal storage

The cabinet is structurally very good, being ‘weighty’ and sturdy, yet elegant in its nature. The cabinet although an original mid piece, is naively built in areas, which is what we think gives it its charm and appeal. The frame itself is made from what we think is pine and as suggested, it is very strong. It is a beautiful looking piece, added with its surface patina and tatty nature in areas. The individual storage drawers are again made of a pine (we think), and these are naturally more light weight. They all fit in their original slots and are generally smooth moving in and out…

To access the drawers, one must unlock the bank (with its original key – included), and then remove the pin from the top section. This is what locks the individual drawers in place. A wonderful piece of craftsmanship!

Some of the drawers show a thin White glass base, where the metal tools were clearly visible to the dentist. The entire piece is pretty clean and tidy inside, yet there are surface scars and abrasions consummate with age. There are also a selection of dental tools (as pictured) included with the bank…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. In general the cabinet is structurally strong and heavy, however there is a surface patina that includes some surface scars and abrasions. We think this is what gives it its character! We do however feel its a perfectly functional piece, that oozes charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections
