1850s American General Store Cabinet

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


An absolutely exceptional piece of early American furniture. This circa 1850 cabinet is generously sized and has 22 drawers overall. The hand-stenciled drawer fronts are labeled for dry goods, spices, and other sundry items including an obscure product called “Salaeratus”, a short lived (and somewhat caustic) precursor to baking soda. Solid pine construction has been given a gorgeous faux bois finish, which is original and in excellent condition. A truly one of kind piece.
