I love this little army green and brassy Weis cabinet. The Weis Manufacturing Company was a factory located in Monroe, Michigan. The factory complex was constructed between 1905–1912. It was built along with many other new industries during Monroe's sudden economic growth at the turn of the twentieth century. When completed in 1912, the complex employed 300 people. From 1912–1964, the company produced paper and office equipment. In 1964 La-Z-Boy purchased the complex, but closed it in 1978. Finally, the city of Monroe purchased the unused complex from La-Z-Boy for only $1 in 1980. It was listed as a Michigan Historic Site and added to the National Register of Historic Places on October 26, 1981.
For some reason the style of the drawers remind me of an Army issued JEEP when removed. The drawers have 2.5" brass handles and 2.5" slots for labels. One is currently labeled, "MERCURY 10 CENT", not sure what that was for. The stoppers in the drawers move easily back and forth.
This drawer set weighs about 9 lbs. and measures approx. 12.5" x 15" x 5". Overall this is a very clean piece. It does have some dings and scratches as expected from a 1950s item.
