Antique oak cabinet. The interior door has incised mark: Det. Towel Co. Large solid oak cabinet; backside has solid wood slats. Tongue you might be able to polish some of that away with a special polish for antique mirrored glass; if not, you can replace the mirror or leave as is for character. This cabinet has a towel bar on the bottom which you could use to display vintage tea towels or kitchen towels. This large cabinet is 27.5 long x a bit over 18 wide x 6 deep. Inside there are 3 shelves and the bottom boxed in area that was originally for towels. This cabinet may have been used in a department store powder room back in the 1800's. It was purchased from another dealer friend who said they obtained it from an old cobbler/shoe shine guy who kept his shining rags in the bottom compartment of this cabinet. It has two brass hangers on the sides to mount on the wall. It can stand on its own but when you open the door it tips forward due to the weight of the door. This would make an awesome medicine cabinet in a country or primitive style room. Or, as a spice cabinet in a kitchen, but you must mount it to the wall for stability and use anchors because it is heavy duty. I put some beeswax was put on the wood to preserve and protect it. It is a one of a kind piece if you love country or primitive style furnishings and might also fit into a mission/arts crafts style room. 12/13ro
