This massive industrial cabinet was recovered from a decommissioned foundry in Milwaukee, WI. The cabinet housed thousands of blueprints dating back to as early as 1900 - each describing and illustrating different parts that were created by the company for the assembly of ships. From top to bottom this cabinet boasts an impressive forty eight drawers. The cabinet is constructed of 3/4" solid pine throughout. Close inspection of the underside shows the quality of the wood used in construction - a quality rarely seen by today's standards.
This cabinet bears the original paint and has not been touched except for dusting. The original tin punch labels adorn the face of the cabinet describing what was once contained inside.
The overall dimensions of this cabinet are 91"W x 32"D x 60"H. Each of the forty eight drawers have interior dimensions of 19"W x 28"D x 3"H.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING: This cabinet was photographed while set on blocks. The cabinet does set nearly flush with the floor when removed from the blocks. These blocks were put in place simply to allow ease of movement during photography and are not included.
This cabinet is prohibitively heavy. Please take this into consideration before purchase. The drawers are removable which will lighten the cabinet significantly.
This cabinet bears signs of wear common with industrial cabinets that see this kind of use. Please take a close look at the photographs.
