Vintage Venus Pencil Store Display Box - Wooden Advertising Cabinet with Glass Doors

Terrific 1940's Venus Pencil vintage advertising display box.
So Deco/ Mid Century!
Marvelous original display item.
Perfect for a store, art organization or artist
who just wants a very cool way to store your pencils!
Would make a great gift!

Wooden construction.
Front "frame" has printed advertising over a latte colored
wood finish.
Original wood is darker... pine or maple.
The rest of the box is painted a pale spring green... very Deco color!

The print on the frame is as follows:

Drawing VENUS Tracing
The World's Largest Selling Drawing Pencils
Preferred By Professionals
American Lead Pencil Company
Trade Mar Registered

Inside the box are slots for holding the pencila
with printed label markings for each size.
Below that is a display of actual Venus pencils
permanently attached to the case as an example
of the different pencils "Accurately Graded in all 21 Degrees".

These pencils are green with the Venus print in gold.
The green surface on each has crazed
giving them a marvelous aged quality!

The box has a hinged back door with a tiny "handle".
The front has two glass sliding doors...
also with small attached wooden "handles".

The box is wider at the base that the top
and the "front frame extends beyond the box.

Great vintage condition! All the parts are here, except the pencils. The surface in in typical destressed condition for a painted surface. Edge wear. The top back corners are chipped. The
frame surface has wear and some shellac discoloration. Also a hint of the pencil mark written at the top left coner of, my guess, the price for the pencils... which looks like 50 cents!
This box was used and it's lived! So cool!

Front frame is 12 1/2" high by 14" wide.
The frame is 2" wide.
Entire box is 11" deep by 12" high
The box is 8" wide.
Back door is 8 1/2" by 10"
