Antique Letterpress Type Set Printer’s Cabinet. I am unsure as to the manufacturer. I originally thought it was a Hamilton, but it seems as though they stamped their name on the drawer pulls of all their cabinets and that is not the case here. The drawer pulls on this piece feature a gorgeous scroll pattern and appear to be brass. I know some collectors prefer brass in its original, tarnished state so I did not attempt to polish them at all. If you prefer the shinier, polished look I am sure they would clean up beautifully. This cabinet features 6 drawers that are divided into 3” x 4” sections. Each drawer is labeled with a paper card (some are in better shape than others) with the name of the type set, the size and the letters that drawer contained. As you can see from the photos, this piece is not perfect. One of the drawer fronts has been repaired and it was clearly used for its intended purpose as it has various dings and some dirt. Overall though, a gorgeous piece and very unique. I haven’t seen another this size and with square drawer fronts. I do have another identical unit that I will be listing separately. If you are interested in purchasing both, let me know and we can work something out. Depending upon your location, I can probably do better on the shipping. Just send me a message and we can either adjust it beforehand or I can simply issue a refund.
