This is a beautiful well kept oak old library card catalogue drawer with just the right amount of patina. The joints are mortise and tenon (male to female fitting), the pull out signage slot/handles are pure brass and recently polished. There is a working lock in the middle, but I don't have the key although I will look for one in the mean time. In picture 4 the unit is turned upside down and you will see a rectangular knotch of wood, this turned right side up with the key engaged would actually slip into the unit below and lock that cabinet as well as others below it. There are two drawers each measuring 5 x 3 1/4" ( inside storage dimensions and made of cherry or birch mortis and tenon)and I believe at one time there was a rod that pushed a sliding piece of wood to take up card slack but that is not in place and the push board has been secured to the front of the drawer but could easily be removed if needed.

Overall this piece is in excellent condition with superb craftsmanship and the right amount of patina. If you need more pictures let me know and will email them to you.

Size: 14" long x 12 3/4 wide x 4 1/2 high
