What a great item we have here - its the only one I have seen in my 40 years of selling and collecting fine Victorian furniture and accessories. This is what I believe is a Victorian Barber Shop Towel Display cabinet, probably from 1900 + or - a couple of years. This one can be free standing on the floor or wall mounted, and may possibly have originally set on top of a barber cabinet - your guess is as good as mine. In any event it is a most unique piece and there probably are not 2 of them anywhere.
Cabinet is stick and ball with lathe turned columns, constructed of poplar, and probably a production piece. It has all of its original hardware, hinges and beveled glass which does show its age nicely. Cabinet has 5 tiers, 7 with the doors open - and makes an excellent display piece for your fine collectibles, or would serve greatly in your bathroom.
Cabinet has been painted in antique black with a poly overlay to protect it from scratching. It has been refinished this way at some point in the distant past, but shows extremely well. There are a couple of replacement screws in the original backboard, which cannot be seen from the front. All in all a most unusual item that is structurally sound and has never been stored in a barn or basement and has no musty smells.
