1940s Six Piece Modular Wood Storage Unit



A wonderful 6-piece, modular shelving storage cabinet. Simple, well-built open box shelves and cabinets that can stack in a variety of ways. Currently in a mottled cream, they've been painted several times over the years, resulting in a fantastic patina, evincing years of use. A perfectly utilitarian modern-meets-folk-Americana storage concept. Dimensions shown reflect how item is shown to be constructed, though size is variable.
