ANTIQUE FOLK ART 1800's 24 DRAWER APOTHECARY ORIGINAL GREY PAINT SQUARE NAILS. Up for sale is this amazing apothecary or work cabinet.
This is the real deal!! It's old, it's Primitive and it's fabulous! " H x 29" W x 10.5 D at the top. It's 27.25" W x 9.5" D at the cabinet. It's a nice 24 drawer cabinet.
The top 5 rows are all about the same size, and bottom row is a little bit taller drawers. All but one of the drawers is painted in a grey / silver color.
This appears to be the original paint. The one upper right unpainted drawer has some of the grey paint on it but most of it is gone. The drawers have cup-handle pulls on them. All of the hardware is old, worn, rusty and in places painted.All of the handles are a similar style with 22 of them matching. Two of them (upper right and bottom row) are similar but different and in a different place on the drawer. It adds a nice "make do" look to this cabinet.
There are lots of square nails in this cabinet and it is heavy! The main members of wood at 3/4 thick! It weighs in at 58 lbs. On top it's not painted and it has a lot of patina from the years.
And, at the right side, there's a chunk of wood missing as you can see in the close-up pictures. The bottom has some wear / damage to it and we took some close-ups of that too. It still sits strong and these issues don't appear to affect it. There are scratches, nicks, chips, paint loss, alligator paint, crackle, hand rub wear, edge wear, paint marks and patina. These are all things you want to see in a true antique - don't you just love it?
