:: The famous Hamilton Manufacturing Co. began in 1880, and as they became bigger and bigger, in 1905 they came out with a catalog to sell the type of furniture and cabinetry that they were using as well, expanding the business from printing to retail provider of "modern furniture, cabinets, and materials for printers".

:: After finding this very antique piece and having the opportunity to look back at the 1905 catalog, this particular piece seems to be one of their furniture cases, although in the catalog of 1905, these types of triangular cases had numbers on the wood and no door, which has led me to believe that this box is pre-1905, and it certainly has all of the characteristics of something built at the turn of the 20th century. It does not appear to be one that they sold as much as it looks to be one that they used in their own warehouse.

:: The wood is very aged, having an oiled blackened color in certain areas, and all appears to be in original condition. Very old Caution label on the door of this box, that is extremely difficult to make out the text of (but is how we found out this was made by Hamilton Mfg Co. - we strained our eyes to make out the words). One piece of the wood is a bit disconnected on the piece's right side, but still hanging on -- we didn't want to mess with the originality of it so decided not to secure it with glue or adhesive but maybe down the line, this is something that would need to be tended to.

:: Stands at a whopping 31" tall and measures 13" wide from back to front (widest point) and 9.5" wide across the face of the box.

:: This antique collectible could certainly be put to use rather than just for display - it would be perfect for sewing supplies, tools, little objects, or anything your imagination can think up.

:: More photographs and international shipping options available upon request.
