moreThis is a stunningly rare, antique, 1920's or 30's walnut Opticians Cabinet made by the American Optical Co.! It has a tambour roll up top that would have housed the selection of eyeglasses, along with a pull out shelf, one drawer and a pair of cabinet doors under that. This would make a great hideaway bar cabinet!
It has solid bronze hardware and is in good condition for the age as you can see in the photographs. There is a little bit of damage to the lower right corner of the tambour, where there was a lock that someone busted off many decades ago, leaving a small piece of wood missing and some screw holes, as well as 4 drilled holes on the top where a mirror used to be mounted. These can be easily filled, or you can find a cool mirror to mount back on there using the original holes.
It would make a nice entry piece for a collector of medical items, or to put on display in an eyeglass store or optometrists office! It has a small bronze plaque on the inside of the tambour portion that reads 'American Optical Company, Southbridge Mass USA'.
It measures 28 1/2" wide, 51 1/2" tall and 12 3/4" deep. less
