Old and rusty, this thread cabinet is still a thing of beauty! It has 4 drawers with glass fronts (the glass in the bottom drawer was just replaced last week)

On the front, the words read:

Star Mercerized
Fast Colors Will Boil

The sides and back feature a red circle with a white star in the middle and read:

Star Mercerized
Fast Colors Will Boil
American Thread Company.

All of the drawers do come completely out. Some, especially the bottom one, needs a little jiggle to get the drawer back in when completely removed. This cabinet apparently was outside or in a damp place for many years because it is quite rusty. *Please look closely at all photos. The inside was very dirty, filled with leaves and dirt. I have washed each drawer and the outside - but you may want to scrub with a brush as there is still a little dirt stuck in the drawers.

Cabinet measures: 15 3/4 wide
8 1/4 inches tall
14 inches front to back

This cabinet is a little heavy and will have to be packed very carefully to protect the glass. I will insure this package when shipped.
