EARLY AAFA ANTIQUE FOLK ART APOTHECARY CABINET ORIGINAL PAINT. Up for sale is this wonderful three-drawer apothecary cabinet. It has two equal sized drawers on the top row and one on the bottom each with its own little mushroom style pull. The color is a medium brown with a lot of alligatoring. It has edge wear and the paint is scuffed. What a great look! 24.75″ L x 15″ D x 10.5 H. The bottom drawer 17.25″ W x 12.25″ D x 2.25 H. Top drawers 7.25″ W x 12.25″ D x 2 H. It’s sturdy and it’s heavy, weighing in around 25 lbs. The top is made from two pieces of wood and is the wonderful brown. The back is wood also and has some holes in it and marks on it as you can see. The drawers are butt jointed and of solid wood. They have old round nails in the bottoms and sides as you can see in the pictures. All the drawers work well. On the bottom of one of the drawers you can clearly see vertical kerfing, the kind that comes from a mechanical saw. With a little research we found that the first mechanical vertical saws were in use around 1840 and later, in to the early 1900’s. After that it was more common that circular kerfing was found by the more effective mechanical circular milling saws. So, this dates this from the mid-late 1800’s most likely. On the fronts of the drawers there are mushroom type knobs and each knob. There are also little escutcheons for a lock on each drawer. Two of the three escutcheons are there but the upper left one is missing. The locks are still there but we don’t have the keys. It is a wonderful and one of a kind item! There are nicks, scrapes, dings. Paint loss, paint drips, paint chips, and worn finish as you can see in the pictures but nothing you wouldn’t expect from an item of this age.
